Meatless Monday Recipe – Chick Pea and Kale Stew

17 Dec

If I haven’t already mentioned this, I LOVE eating soup in the winter.  Nothing like some yummy delicious soup to warm up your body on a cold winter day.  And the best thing about soup is that you can make large batches and then freeze the rest.  Freeze them in smaller serving sizes this way on a night when you’ve been working late or in a rush or just don’t feel like cooking, you take out a frozen serving, warm it up on the stove and voila!!!  I plan on making some this weekend 🙂


  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1/2 head cauliflower, diced
  • Sea salt and fresh pepper
  • 1 15 oz can diced tomatoes, juice reserved
  • 1 15 oz can chick peas
  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves torn into bite size pieces
  • 4-6 cups organic chicken broth

Increase heat and add tomatoes and their juice. Cook, stirring until mixture begins to carmalize, about 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper.
