Squash-and-Kale Toasts

Steven Satterfield is a huge fan of kale—especially when it's combined with sweet roasted squash. Look for Tuscan kale (also called Lacinato or Dinosaur kale) when possible; it's tender and tasty.

Ingredients

  • 2 (2 pounds) small delicata squash , —peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded and sliced
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound kale, —thick stems and ribs discarded, leaves coars
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 8 1/2-inch-thick slices of peasant bread
  • 4 ounce (1 1/2 loose cups) shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, toss the squash with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread the squash on a baking sheet and roast for about 30 minutes, turning once, until tender and lightly browned.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the remaining 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the kale and cook until it is wilted, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic slices and cook until the kale is tender, about 3 minutes longer. Season the kale with salt and pepper. Add the squash and toss gently to combine.
  3. Heat a cast-iron grill pan. Brush the bread with olive oil and grill over high heat, turning once, until toasted. Mound the squash and kale on the toasts, top with the shaved cheese and serve.
