In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm the garlic in the coconut oil, stirring often, until light brown. Place the kale in the pan. Cover and let it cook for about 2 minutes. Using tongs, turn the greens to coat with the olive oil and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover the pan and cook until the kale for another 2-3 minutes. don’t overcook it, we don’t want to kill off all the benefits.
In a separate frying pan add coconut oil again, stir in the chickpeas, chili and salt and all the other spices.
