Kale with Garbanzo Beans
This could easily be served on its own as a kind of vegan casserole, and is very good for you. I used it as a way to dress up frozen fish fillet night.
1/2 C diced onion
2 Tb olive oil
1 bunch green kale, de-stemmed and chiffonaded
2 cloves garlic, minced
2/3 C dried garbanzo beans or 1 can, drained
1 batch oven-dried tomatoes (either chopped or made with cherry or grape tomatoes)
1. If cooking the beans, soak for 8 to 12 hours. Drain, cover with water, and simmer for 1-1/2 hours. Drain again. Otherwise, just drain a can and rinse.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add diced onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chopped kale and sprinkle lightly with salt to taste. Cook until kale is completely wilted and most of the excess moisture has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and beans; cook another 2 minutes, to heat the beans through. Serve hot.
