4 cups of kale (stalks removed and chopped)

1 can of chick peas

1 small onion (chopped)

2 cloves of garlic (chopped) (optional)

4 eggs (boiled and quartered)

1/4 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon of vinegar (optional)




Saute the onion and garlic in half of the olive oil for about 1 minute on medium heat.  Add the kale and saute stirring once in a while. You will notice the kale will start to wilt as it cooks. Lower heat and cook the kale to your desired preference for as little as 5 minutes to 10 minutes or longer.

Drain and rinse chick peas and add to the kale. Cook until the chick peas are warm. Add the salt and pepper to taste.

Drizzle with the remaining olive oil and vinegar before serving.
