Chickpea and Kale Stew

Chickpea and Kale Stew

img_2520.jpegWhen I was in England last week, a friend and I headed out to a Pub in Sussex called the Black Cat pub.  We were prepared for typical pub grub and were pleasantly surprised to find a robust menu with lots of healthy options.  We started out sharing a bowl of green olives which were ahhhmazing, in fact, I'm dying to know what type they were because I've never had any like it.  They were pretty big and crunchy.  I've eaten a lot of green olives but none have compared to these.  If anyone knows what type they might be, please let me know!

Onto the main course (did I mention that the Prosecco that they had was also amazing?). Ok, focus Tania ????. The main that I chose was a chickpea stew with kale and a piece of either steamed or baked cod on top.  It was delish and I knew thought that it would be fairly easy to re-create.  

This was so fast (in typical Tania style!) and I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did!
