KALE. Finally delicious.

Another Monday, another recipe. This one inspired and coached through by my lovely bestie Emily (Spanky) at Cheaper Than Wisdom for her Lemon-Feta Chard. I was so excited when I read her blog post because I am painfully picky and it’s really hard to get dark leafy greens regularly into my diet. This does the trick! When I went shopping there was no Chard, so I made do with Kale. And it worked.

Lemon-Parmesan Kale with Chickpeas
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
half a red onion, diced
2 clove garlic, minced and let sit for 5 minutes before cooking
1-2 bunch of kale, 3-5 handfuls, leaves chopped into large pieces and stems removed
1/4 cup white wine
juice of 1 wedge of fresh lemon
1 can chickpeas
1/4 cup total of parmesan
Lemon pepper to taste
A smidge of salt

Prep:
1) heat oil to medium-low, add onion and cook till translucent, then add garlic – careful not to burn!!
2) add wine and kale, stir to coat, cook down till pretty wilty and bright
3) add chickpeas, lemon, salt/pepper, and Parm, heat through. Emily called for a feta topper, so you can do that too
4) eat this hot for dinner then take the leftovers cold for lunch!

Get on the healthy train, foodies 🙂

  1. I LOVE kale and this recipe looks amazing. It would be easy to make this vegan too, just omit the cheese, and the flavors would still be amazing. Fresh lemon does wonders for greens.
