Kale and Chickpea Stew

this is based on a recipe for Lentil and Kale Stew from Jiko....The Cooking Place in my Delicious Disney cookbook. I made this with the Kale from my CSA farmshare, and grape tomatoes and mirepoix I have from Trader Joes. I always seem to have red potatoes around.



2 cups chickpeas (I used dried this time)

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup olive oil

1 bay leaf

1 cup chopped onion

2 stalks celery chopped

2 carrots peeled and chopped

(In my case I had a container of prepared mirepoix from trader joes I used instead)

2 garlic cloves grated

1 bunch kale washed and thinly sliced

1/2 pint grape tomatoes halved

3 red potatoes cubed

32 oz chicken stock (in this case fake chicken stock made from "Better Than Boullion", which I love)

1 cup fresh chopped parsley

1 tsp ground black pepper

Olive Oil and Grated Parmesan for garnish




Heat olive oil with bay leaf, carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Add Kale and simmer for 5 min

Add tomatoes and potatoes

Add cooked chickpeas, stock, and 1 tsp salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 min

Add parsley and pepper. Season to taste.

Top with cheese and olive oil if desired


It's hearty and tasty. The restaurant this recipe is taken from does african cooking as part of the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Probably the best vegetarian food in all of Disney World. The cookbook claims it tastes better the next day. We shall see :P
