  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 15-oz BPA-free can unsalted chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups BPA-free canned, jarred or boxed unsalted diced tomatoes (TRY: Jovial Organic Diced Tomatoes)
  • 1 large bunch kale, stemmed and chopped (about 10 cups loosely packed)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 oz feta cheese, crumbled


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. In a large ovenproof nonstick skillet on medium, heat oil. Add onion and sauté for about 5 minutes, until softened. Add garlic, cumin, coriander, paprika, salt and cayenne. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute more.
  2. Add chickpeas, tomatoes and 1 1/2 cups water. Increase heat to medium high and bring to a simmer. Add kale, a few handfuls at a time, stirring with each addition until kale wilts. When all kale has been added, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until kale is tender, 5 minutes.
  3. Turn off heat. With the back of a spoon, create 4 shallow indentations in vegetable mixture. In a small bowl, crack 1 egg; slide into 1 indentation. Repeat with remaining eggs. Sprinkle cheese over eggs and vegetable mixture. Transfer skillet to oven and cook until eggs are set, 8 to 10 minutes.
