Ingredients

Olive oil, for sautéing

  • 1 can chickpeas 15 ounces, drained, and rinsed
  • 3 large cloves garlic sliced
  • 2 cups kale chopped
  • 1 packet vegan tortellini 9 ounces, frozen

For the Curry Dressing:

  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy yogurt
  • ½ cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • Maple syrup to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Optional: Rub the chickpeas between a kitchen towel to remove the skins.
  • Add a drizzle of olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chickpeas. Sauté the chickpeas for about 7 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a rimmed plate.
  • Meanwhile, add the yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, water, and curry powder to a medium bowl. Whisk to combine. Add maple syrup to taste. Season with salt and black pepper. Set aside.
  • Add a drizzle of olive oil to the same skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for about 2 minutes, or until lightly golden. Stir continuously to prevent the garlic from burning.
  • Add the kale and toss with the garlic and olive oil. Add 2 tablespoons water and cover. Let the kale steam for 2 minutes. Remove the lid and sauté for one more minute. Transfer the kale and garlic to the plate with the chickpeas.
  • Add a drizzle of olive oil to the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tortellini flat side down and let them cook undisturbed for 2 minutes. Add ½ cup water, cover, and steam for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and stir in the chickpeas, kale, and garlic. Season with salt and black pepper. Add the desired amount of dressing for serving.
