Kale Chickpea Mash
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1 bunch kale (about 8 cups raw)
1 (14 ounce) can garbanzo beans
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon onion powder
salt, to taste
1. Saute minced garlic in olive oil on medium-high heat until it turns golden brown, carefully as to not burn it.
2. Add the kale and stir, preferably with tongs to coat the kale in the oil and garlic. You may need to add a few tablespoon water.
3. After the kale has wilted a bit, add the garbanzo beans and cook for about 4 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and stir.
4. Begin mashing the chickpeas. I use a fork because I don't like them mashed too thoroughly; I still like some chunks. Garnish with some additional nutritional yeast or sesame seeds.
Source of recipe: I was making some kale and noticed that I had a can of chickpeas. I figured I might as well combine my two favorite vegetables. Ever.
