GARLIC KALE WITH CHICKPEAS & TOASTED SESAME

yum! i had NO idea that kale was edible (you know that garnish vegetable you normally get?) not only that, but it is a very nutrient-dense vegetable with over 1300% of your daily vitamin k requirement, 190% of vitamin A requirement, 88.8% of vitamin C, 25% of manganese, and so much more. in addition, it’s a very low-cal way to get all your nutrients.

here is a good 101 on kale video if you’re new to this vegetable:

Ingredients:

– 1 bunch of kale (chopped, with stems removed — refer to video for preparation)

– 1 can of chickpeas (rinsed)

– 1 tbsp of olive oil

– 3-4 tbsp sesame seed

– minced garlic

With a little olive oil, let the minced or chopped garlic heat up in a pan over medium heat and then add sesame seeds and rinsed chickpeas to brown a little for about 5 minutes. Simply add in kale with water, cover pan for at least 7 minutes or more to fully cook. Stir occasionally… kale takes longer to cook than other greens. Not only is this side dish packed from nutrients from the kale, but the chickpeas give it a good source of protein. This is a pretty simple-tasting dish, or more flavor I would suggest about 2-3 tbsp of rice vinegar with some soy sauce.

(serves 4-6)
