OMG, so many people ask me for easy one dish wonders. Well this one’s it. I like it hot for cold winter nights or cold for summer picnics. Super healthy super spices and foods, super fast, super yummy … It doesnt get any better than this one.


  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1/2 Small red onion
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp Cayenne
  • 2 tbsp Turmeric
  • 1/2 inch Piece of ginger grated
  • 1 Yellow or orange bell pepper chopped small
  • 10 Shitake mushroom caps sliced thinly
  • 1 1/4 cups Cooked chickpeas
  • 2 heads Kale sliced into 1cm ribbons
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat a large pan on medium heat for about 30 seconds. Add the oil and let heat up, about another minute.
  • Add the onions and garlic, let cook for 1 minute.
  • Add in the spices (turmeric, cumin, and cayenne), and let heat up until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the ginger, bell pepper, shitake mushrooms, and chickpeas. Stir occasionally and cook until the mushrooms start to get glossy and the peppers start to get soft, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Add in the kale and cover, for 1 minute. It will start to shrink and turn bright green. Stir the kale, until all of it is uniformly bright green, which should take less than a minute. Don’t overcook.
  • Remove from heat, add salt to taste, and serve.
