Chickpea Kale Stir-Fry


    Infused with Indian flavour and nutrient-packed kale, this skillet dish proves that sometimes simple is best. If some of the garlic and spices stick to the skillet by the time you have added the final ingredients, pour in a small amount of broth or white wine to help scrape up the flavourful bits. 1 Tbsp (15 mL) grapeseed or extra-virgin olive oil


    4 cups (1 L) cooked or canned chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
    3 garlic cloves, sliced
    2 tsp (10 mL) minced fresh ginger
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) garam masala
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) turmeric
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cayenne
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
    6 cups (1.5 L) chopped kale
    2 cups (500 mL) cherry tomatoes, halved
    1/4 cup (60 mL) hempseeds
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1 cup (250 mL) plain, 2% Greek yogurt
    1 tsp (5 mL) lemon zest
