  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 10 ounces fresh kale tough ribs removed, chopped
  • 1 can chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pepper, salt, coriander, and garlic. Add the kale and toss until kale is coated evenly and slightly wilted, 3-5 minutes.
  2. Remove kale from heat. You may serve the kale warm, but the feta will melt slightly or you may choose to chill the kale or allow it to come to room temperature.
  3. Top kale with chickpeas, feta, and pecans. Sprinkle with lemon juice and lemon zest. Serve.
