I think we can all agree that Kale has had quite a year! I might even consider her prom queen of 2011, every one suddenly wanted to be her friend and she gets invited to all the hottest restaurants…Ha! No seriously, kale (in some form) is on every menu of late and oh so good for you.
When it gets cold outside I instantly crave a hearty soup for lunch…so cosy & comforting! That said, I thought why not give a modern twist on the classic escarole & beans substituting our kale queen and my fave…chickpeas. Greens, beans, olive oil, garlic, & herbs….my kind of ingredients.
