Method

    Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often, until translucent. Add garlic, thyme sprigs, bayleaf and cumin seeds, stir well and cook for 1 minute.
  • 3
    Add remaining spices, sea salt and sugar and cook for 30 seconds. Add diced tomatoes, tomato paste, water and chickpeas. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes.

    Add kale, cover and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, add red wine vinegar to taste. Remove bayleaf and thyme stalks. Serve in bowls, drizzled with a little herbed yoghurt.

Notes

  • Cavolo nero (black cabbage) would also be lovely in place of kale.
