Prep time






  • 10 oz chopped kale, stems removed

  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

  • ½ cup dried cranberries (can substitute dried cherries or pomegranates if desired)

  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, shredded or grated

  • 1 clove garlic, pressed or minced

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place kale in a large bowl and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Using clean hands, massage olive oil into kale leaves until kale turns dark green and softens. If the kale is not wilting enough, add a small amount of olive oil and keep massaging.
