Firstly, I realize that I have several kale recipes on my website. BUT, in my defense, they are all delicious. Though, in having so many recipes, I think I’ve become a Brooklyn stereotype. But, hey, I don’t care because my appetite at lunch yesterday while working from home was sated.
- 1 bunch of dinosaur kale, thinly chopped
- A handful of raw almonds, toasted, then chopped
- 1 can of chickpeas, rinsed*
- 2-3 tsp of olive oil
- juice of 1 lemon
- shaved pecorino
- salt and pepper to taste
Note, I find that if I massage the kale with the oil I use less oil. So, then, massage olive oil into the kale leaves until they are well-coated, add remaining ingredients and toss. You can add some lemon zest too, but, for me, the juice was just perfect.
*Now that I think of it, this would kick it up a bit if the chickpeas were roasted in the oven and then cooled slightly. Hmmm…next time!
