Vegetable of the Week: Kale

For our CSA share this week, we received a bunch of kale and asparagus.  Kale is not my husband’s favourite vegetable but he enjoyed both of the kale dishes I made this week.

Kale-Chickpea with Rice/Couscous

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of kale – cut stem into 1 cm pieces and cut leaves into ribbons
  • 1 can of chickpea – rinsed and drained
  • 1 tomato – diced
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 onion – chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Rice or couscous to serve with

Directions

  1. Heat oil in medium-high heat, then fry the onion.
  2. Stir in the kale stems and fry for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add the kale leaves, tomatoes, and chickpea.  Cook for another couple of minutes.
  4. Add the lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper.  Cook for another couple of minutes.
  5. Serve with rice or couscous.

Kale & Asparagus Pasta Alfredo

I followed the recipe for A Dash of Zest’s Kale & Asparagus Pasta Alfredo. The only changes I made were using green onion and pea shoot greens as garnish (both from our CSA share).
