This dish is simple to prepare, but offers a great variety of textures and depth of flavor. Collards are a great substitute for the kale, or blend several kinds of sturdy braising greens.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large, heavy Dutch oven or heavy-bottom pot over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon paprika and red pepper flakes; sprinkle with salt. Add kale, stock and garbanzo beans. Cover and cook until kale is soft and beans are heated through.

Remove lid, turn heat to medium-high and cook until the sauce thickens and clings to the kale and beans. Season to taste with salt and pepper and more paprika, if desired.

Transfer to a serving bowl; drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and serve.

Unassuming ingredients, amazing flavor

Great balance of flavor with so few ingredients. I substituted collards instead of kale - worked perfectly.
