"Cheesy" Chickpea Kale


A delicious way to eat kale, and with a little added protein in the chick peas and quinoa. Boom. Delicious and super healthy.

I've been known to eat cook this up by itself for lunch or just as a snack but it would also be great as a side.

So here's how you make it.


3 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup cooked chick peas
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup cooked quinoa
3 cups roughly chopped kale
2-3 tbsp nutritional yeast
fresh pepper
pink himalayan salt (or sea salt)
chilli flakes (as spicy as you like it)


  1. Add coconut oil to a non-stick pan and let warm up over medium heat. Then add the chick peas and season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes. Let fry until they start to turn golden brown.

  2. Add minced garlic and the quinoa. Let fry another 1-2 minuets until the quinoa gets a bit crispy.

  3. Turn the burner to low heat. Add nutritional yeast and kale to the pan. Cook on low for a minuet or less... just enough for the kale to start to wilt (but not be cooked to death and mushy). Serve right away.
