Kale and Garbanzo Pilaf

I can’t claim credit for coming up with this savory creation — this was purely my mother’s genius, all I did was stir. A delightfully rich and subtle flavor. The feta adds a lot, highly recommended if you eat dairy.


Kale and garbanzo pilaf


Chopped onion and garlic

Chopped red pepper (optional)

1 bunch kale leaves, stems and leaves separately chopped

Generous sprinkles cumin, rosemary or other Italian seasonings, and nutmeg

2-4 cups cooked garbanzos, rinsed

Crumbled feta

2 cups cooked couscous or rice

Sauté onion (and stems if using) in oil. Once they have begun to soften after a few minutes, add red pepper and garlic, and cook a few minutes more until tender. Throw in kale, sauté for a few minutes until wilted, then add a bit of water and cook a few minutes longer. Add garbanzos and seasonings, and allow to simmer until warm and melded. Turn off heat, mix in couscous and feta, if desired, and serve as a lovely one-dish meal. Also great alongside rice.
