Curried Chickpeas Over Wilted Greens #WeekdaySupper

I’m back again sharing another recipe for #WeekdaySupper — easy 30 minute meals with ingredients you don’t have to search high and low to find. Things can get pretty hectic during the week, so it’s pretty great to have these recipes on hand when you need a little push and shove in the kitchen. I made this Curried Chickpeas Over Wilted Greens one night when I opened my refrigerator and did the what-am-I-going-to-make-tonight song and dance. I was stocked — and I mean STOCKED — with produce. Last month I received a share from one of the local farms. It was filled with gorgeous vegetables — beets and radishes and tomatoes and peppers — and so many greens! There were bags of bok choy, bibb lettuce, romaine leaves and…red frilly mustard greens. I had never seen this vegetable in my life and had NO idea what to do with it. But after much Pinterest research and asking some of my chef and foodie friends, I figured a plan.

I had to go Indian. Curry sauce and powder are the stars here so definitely expect some heat. Oh yeah, and the red pepper flakes pack some punch too…

What’s great about this recipe, though, is you don’t have to use red frilly mustard greens. Because, let’s be honest, you’re not going to find that in your local grocery store. Maybe at a farmer’s market or something like that, but #WeekdaySupper is all about easy-to-find ingredients and quick meals. So use spinach, kale, collard greens — whatever you can find or already have on hand. I could eat chickpeas in some form everyday, whether they’re pureed into a hummus, roasted for a crunchy snack, or simmered in delicious spices like in this Curried Chickpeas Over Wilted Greens.

I’m telling you though — keep water nearby. We’re getting spicy tonight!
