Sausage, Kale, and Garbanzo Skillet
  • 2 cans garbanzo beans (800 mL, or 28 oz)
  • 2 large sausage links, chunked (500 mL, or 2 cups)
  • 1 onion, chopped (500 mL, or 2 cups)
  • 1 L (8 cups) kale, chopped
  • Olive oil

In a large skillet, start the garbanzo beans on high heat with a splash of olive oil. Stir intermittently until they start to brown, about 5 minutes.

Kale Garbanzo Ingredients A good use for a lot of kale!

Turn it down to medium heat and add the onion and sausage. Ideally, it should be a sausage with strong flavor, and not too lean, so there’s enough fat and spice to go around. If the pan starts to look dry, add another splash of olive oil.

Cook the sausage through, then add the kale. It’ll seem like way too much, and probably overflow your skillet. Fold it in gently. After a few minutes it’ll cook down. The color should also become much more vibrant.

Kale Garbanzo Finished This recipe is great to take for lunch! It’s pretty healthy, it reheats well, and it fills you up without making you tired.

Pack into four lunch-sized containers and you’re good to go!
