Warm Kale, Apple and Chickpea Salad


Recipe from Elaine Granata from Granata Farms CSA.

I joined a CSA for the first time. It is AMAZING! I am cooking with new ingredients and finding new recipes for things I don’t typically buy. Kale was one of this weeks vegetables. I’m not typically enthused about eating and cooking with kale. BUT….Elaine, the urban farmer, sent out this recipe and it’s amazing!!! It’s a great as a side dish or as a vegetarian main dish. It’s flavorful, healthy, and packed with flavor. If it doesn’t sound appealing, I totally get it, but try it and you’ll be surprised how much you enjoy it!

1 1/2 green apples, sliced thin
1 clove garlic
1 can chickpeas; rinsed and drained
1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves chopped
1/2 cup raisins
goat cheese, crumbled (or feta)
salt and pepper

Saute apples in 1 T. olive oil for about 2 minutes. Add garlic. Cook another 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add chickpeas and kale. Saute for 2 minutes, stirring ingredients together. Add about 1/4 cup-1/2 cup water. Cover and cook for 10 minutes on medium-low. Remove the cover. Add raisins and cheese. Stir gently to combine. Serve warm or at room temperature.
