Sausage w/ Chickpeas & Kale

   

Even though I’m a mega cheese beast, I do occasionally make a vegan entree. This is a really hearty dish with lots of protein, and the kale provides lots of vitamins as well. I’ve used Tofurky brand sausage links, but use whatever brand you like – or if you’re not a vegetarian try using turkey sausage or something of that sort. One half of the entire dish as I’ve listed it below (which is a lot of food) comes in under 500 calories and has a nice 38g of protein. I really love making this because it comes together in one skillet in a very short period of time. Prep and clean up is incredibly easy with this one!

  3. 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  4. 1/2 onion, diced

  8. 1 teaspoon dried sage
  9. 1/2 teaspoon paprika
Instructions
  1. Cook the onions and garlic in the olive oil until slightly translucent.

  3. Stir in the sliced sausage and continue to cook until warmed through.
  4. Put in your chopped kale, a couple more tablespoons of water, and cover to allow the kale to wilt. Once it’s wilted, but still nice and green, salt and pepper to taste.
