Kale with spicy chickpeas 

After harvesting a huge bunch of kale from my veggie garden I was looking for some inspiration of what to cook with it. I came across a recipe that took my fancy on the bbcgoodfood website. This is my version of the recipe . Also perfect for meat free Monday . Ingredients

Serves 4 

30ml coconut oil

1 onion , chopped

5ml chopped garlic

15ml grated fresh ginger

10ml cumin seeds

5ml ground coriander

5ml turmeric

30ml tomato paste

1 large bunch of kale, stalks removed and sliced 

400g tin of organic chickpeas , drained

250ml vegetable stock

45ml grated coconut flesh or use dessiccated coconut 

125ml plain yoghurt

Salt to taste

Coriander leaves to serve

Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion, garlic and ginger until soft. 

Add the spices and tomato purée and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring . Add the shredded kale, chickpeas, stock and coconut and stir well. Cover and simmer until kale is soft . About 10 minutes . 

Stir in the yoghurt and salt to taste and simmer for another 10 minutes. Serve sprinkled with coriander leaves . 

I bought a small coconut and opened it with a screwdriver , hacksaw and hammer. What a mission . You can buy tubs of coconut flesh from some supermarkets , so much easier.
