I like healthy food. But I love yummy food! I love this dish because it is both.
Last year, on a trip to Ikea my friend Amy told me about this recipe. (Little did I know in just 6 months I’d be living 20 minutes from an Ikea. 😀 ) I think it is my go to favorite recipe when I need something fast, healthy, and delicious.
She gave me the recipe using Spinach but lately I’ve been on a kale kick. I love the kale because you don’t need to use as much, and it adds a crunchy bite to the dish.
- 1 T Olive Oil
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 3 cloves of garlic, diced
- 2 t curry powder
- 1 t red pepper
- 1 t ginger
- 1 can chickpeas
- 1 can tomatoes
- 1 bag of spinach or 3 good handfuls of kale
Heat olive oil in skillet. Saute onion till translucent. Add garlic and seasonings. Saute for 1 minute. Add the rest of the ingredients and heat until greens are wilted.
I love it topped with a little smoked paprika.
You can serve over cous cous or rice for a little more substance. I have eaten it 4x this week with a protein shake since I’m trying to add more protein in my diet right now while I do Insanity.
And only a Mom would suck the spice off chickpea by chickpea so her daughter can enjoy it too!
