Chickpea kale stir fry

My friend Kim sent me this recipe last week and I just happened to have most of the ingredients on hand, so I gave it a shot!

Chickpea and Kale Stir Fry

The only ingredients I did not have were lemon juice (which had expired) and cumin seed. I substituted 1/4 cup orange juice and ground cumin.

I served a portion of the dish over top some brown basmati rice.

This dish turned out okay but lacked a little bit in flavor. I blame that on not having the lemon juice and perhaps I could’ve added some more spices.

Sriracha would’ve helped too but alas, we were out of that as well! Time to restock on a few things!

I also expected more flavor from the basmati rice. It just tasted like regular long grain brown rice to me, what’s that about?

Oh well, it was still a good use of whole grains, veggies and protein, all in one dish! And perhaps I can try it again with all the right ingredients. 😉
