The Dark Horse: Chickpeas
Keep a can of chickpeas in your pantry and you'll never face a boring plate of wilted greens again. Lee incorporates these little legumes into sautéed kale, cooking them first in some oil and garlic until they begin to brown but are still soft inside. Then she tosses in the kale along with water or stock, and cooks them five minutes more. This trick works with spinach or Swiss chard, too, and is one of the fastest ways you can turn a vegetable into a main course.
