Kale and Chickpea Stew:
It doesn't have to be soup weather to enjoy this amazing Kale and Chickpea Stew!  This stew is hearty from the chickpeas, a little creamy from the Parmesan cheese, and a little spicy from the fire-roasted tomatoes. 
It’s such a good combination and it’s no wonder I love enjoying this in the spring and summertime! What I love about this soup is that it makes a great vegetarian dish, speaking from someone that loves meat! It's got great texture and taste and it will also be on your table in 30 minutes.

About Tabitha:

Most memories I have with friends and family contain food of some sort and I believe food brings everyone together! I love creating recipes that are loved by the group and don’t require a lot of time to prepare. I also tend to gravitate towards recipes that do not contain a lot of ingredients because I like to keep things simple in the kitchen. I’m not much of a baker, but maybe down the road!


When I am not cooking you can find me hanging out with friends, listening to music, going for a run or looking for inspiration for other recipes. I live in Atlanta with my cats Milo and Tiger. I love to entertain and I’m not afraid to bust a silly dance move when the music gets me going!
