Kale is incredibly good for you, since it’s full of vitamins A, K, B6 and C, calcium, potassium, copper and manganese. Sometimes, however, it can seem a bit…well, meh.
This filling and gluten-free and vegan soup is still light enough to enjoy year-round, and the addition of vibrant green kale brightens up the entire dish. The Instant Pot makes cooking with soaked chickpeas a breeze – if you’re used to using canned chickpeas don’t let the prep scare you. Soaking and cooking your own chickpeas ends up being healthier and cheaper in the long run! The combination of tomato paste and diced tomatoes really helps round out the flavors and creates a rich tomato taste in every bite. The greens can be kale, chard, mustard, or even mixed! Just make sure to take out the tough core from the greens prior to cooking, with only the tender leaves added to the final step.
We love kale, but even though the prep for fresh kale is easy, it can be a bit tedious. That’s why we were so excited to find this pre-prepped organic kale from Harvest Sensations. We found this in the produce section of Whole Foods. Making this delicious, nutritious steamed sesame kale is crazy-easy – and yummy!
