Stop our Kirkwood sample table at the NewBo Market for a taste on Friday, April 21st between 11:30 and 1:30 PM. Registered Dietitian, Kristen Decker, will share other ways to feature beans and kale as quick, versatile spring time delights!

April marks the true kick off to spring featuring Earth Day, garden week and public health month. It seems only fitting to fire up the skillet for something veggie-focused to feed the family. International spices pair well with vegetarian dishes and this recipe is a stellar example.
Chickpeas are a fabulous sources of fiber and plant-based protein, not to mention an deliciously earthy and creamy element in this dish. Kale becomes mellow and tender when complimented by the Indian spices but still serves as a nutritional powerhouse, with 1 cup providing 200% of your daily value of vitamin A and 100% vitamin C. It’s the perfect time to start thinking about planting kale in your garden this year! But first…come try this dish!
