Fried Chickpeas With Sausage & Kale

(adapted from Mark Bittman)

1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
olive oil
1 can of chickpeas, drained & rinsed
2 uncooked Italian sausages
a bottle of beer/wine or some water
1 bunch of kale or chard or spinach (rinsed & hard stems removed) chopped into bite-sized pieces

1. Put some oil in a large frying pan and add in the onions and garlic. Saute over medium-high heat until onions get soft and start smelling good.

2. Add chickpeas to frying pan and cook for 10 minutes until they start getting a bit brown on the edges. Stir them from time to time.

3. Cut up some uncooked sausage. Add to the frying pan.

4. Once the sausages are cooked through, add some chopped kale or spinach or chard into the frying pan. Add some beer/wine/water, a little bit at a time, so things don’t dry out. Toss around the kale until it’s bright green and cooked.

5. Eat in a big bowl with some rye bread. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if you like.

This recipe comes from Everybody Likes Sandwiches, one of my favorite blogs. She has modified the recipe for her father, whom she is teaching to cook for himself. I might be able to handle this one. =)
