Garbanzo Beans With Kale in a Tomato sauce...

I went to the Cask and Schooner the other night, and had this dish!  It's so simple and yet so wonderful, trust me this is one of the best dishes ever!  Nice job Chef John

I changed it a little bit, see what you think...

Recipe for four:
2 cans Eden Garbanzo beans, drained and washed
1 can Eden crushed tomatoes
1 red onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 c chicken stock
1/2 t chili flakes
1/2 t paprika
Salt and pepper
Olive oil
1 bunch kale, washed, stems removed and chopped

Lightly brown the onions over medium high heat in a little butter and olive oil.  When done, add the garlic and cook for about one minute.  Now add all the ingredients except the kale, and cook for about 20 minutes on a gentle simmer.  Be sure to season well with salt and pepper, keep tasting it until you have the right amount.  Beans need seasoning or they will be bland!  Add more stock if you need to, or reduce it if you want the dish to be thick.

Just before you're ready to serve add the kale and melt.  Serve on warm plates...

Bon Appetit!  Chef Hobbes
