Kale and Chickpea Salad

  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts
  • 1 bunch tuscan kale
  • 1-15 ounce can of chickpeas
  • 12 Brussels sprouts
  • 1/4 cup shaved parmesan
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2-3 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Toast Hazelnuts: Heat oven to 350. Toast hazelnuts on a baking sheet for 10 minutes, tossing once. Let cool and coarsely chop.

Roast Chickpeas: Heat oven to 350. Spread the chickpeas in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until crisp, about 30 minutes.

Prepare dressing: In a small bowl whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, honey. Add the minced garlic and fresh thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Prepare the salad: Wash the kale and pat day. Trim heavy stems and stack sections of leaves, then cut them into very thin ribbons crosswise. Wash the Brussel sprouts and cut into thin ribbons.

Assemble salad: Put the kale and Brussels sprouts in a large bowl. Add the roasted chickpeas and toasted hazelnuts. Add the dressing and toss well until all of the ingredients are well coated. Garnish with Parmesan before serving.
