Ingredients

    6 cloves garlic thinly sliced
    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
    2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 pound kale, center ribs discarded, finely chopped
    3 cups low sodium chicken stock
    3 cups water
    2 cans no salt added chickpeas, rinsed and drained
    1/5 tsp black pepper
    2 Tbsp red-wine vinegar
    1/4 cup crumbled reduced fat feta cheese

Tips

To make this vegetarian change the chicken stock to vegetable stock.


Directions

In a 5-6 quart pot, cook the garlic and pepper flakes in the oil over medium heat, stirring occasionally, just until the garlic begins to color, about 3 minutes. Stir in the kale and cook, stirring frequently, until wilted, about 5 minutes.

Add the broth, water, chickpeas, and black pepper. Cover and simmer until the kale is very tender, about 20 minutes.

Stir in the vinegar. Sprinkle each serving with 1/2 Tbsp of feta cheese.
