Although naturally rich in fibre, this dish gets a bonus fibre boost from the addition of chickpeas. Clean the kale well because dirt tends to get stuck in the folds.

In large shallow Dutch oven, heat 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil over medium heat; cook onion, garlic, salt and pepper for about 4 minutes or until softened.

Stir in kale and lemon rind; cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes or until slightly wilted. Pour in 3/4 cup (175 mL) water; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes or until kale is tender.

Stir in chickpeas and lemon juice; cook over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes or until no liquid remains. Drizzle with remaining oil.
