Crispy Kale and Chickpea Salad

Happy Friday everyone!

I’m still getting in the swing of things at home and work. I’m so thankful for a 2 day work week. Needless to say, yesterday after I painfully forced myself go to the gym and grocery store, the last thing I felt like doing was cooking. Lucky for me I have an awesome roommate who let me indulge in her super healthy dinner.

She braised some kale with a touch of olive oil, a teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes and salt & pepper to taste. She topped it with chickpeas that she also braised with the same red pepper flakes, olive oil and s&p.

She cooked these on a baking sheet at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until slightly crispy.

I added a handful of craisins that my mom sent me home with after the holidays. Roomie topped her salad with some rotisserie chicken.

Super easy, über healthy weeknight dinner.

Sometimes you just have to let someone else do the cooking!
