I created this 5 ingredient recipe because I love simple yet nutrient dense food. It is perfect on a bed of quinoa or on top of avocado toasts.


  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained*
  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mince garlic and dice the tomato and onion.
  2. In a pan heat olive oil.
  3. Sautee garlic, tomato and onion in olive oil until tomato starts to fall apart.
  4. Add chickpeas, salt and pepper and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Tear kale into bite size pieces and add to pan. Cook until kale wilts but still maintains its green hue, 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Serve while hot.


* Reserve the chickpea liquid for baking. It's called aquafava and binds like eggs =)
