Hot Pot with Kale

This was definitely inspired by/based upon the Chickpea Hot Pot at 101 Cookbooks, but I also made a few changes to better suit our tastes and needs - most notably, I changed the spices around, and substituted potatoes for the bulgur wheat since we have gluten sensitivities in our house. It's another easy, healthy, weeknight win - we'll definitely be cooking it again.

3 T. olive oil
1 sweet onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
3 c. chicken or vegetable broth (use vegetable if you want the dish to be vegetarian or vegan)
1 can chickpeas
3-4 red or yellow potatoes
1 bunch kale, stems removed and chopped into bite-sized pieces (3-4 c.)
1 head cauliflower, in bite sized pieces (about 3-4 c.)
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1 tsp. dill
1/2 -1 tsp. crushed red pepper
salt and black pepper to taste

In a large saucepot or soup pot, saute the onions and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until they begin to brown. Add chicken broth and beans and bring to a simmer. Add the rest of the vegetables and cover. Simmer over medium heat, tossing occasionally, until the vegetables are just tender. Add the seasonings, combine well, and serve.

As always, if you are gluten or soy intolerant, be sure to use a brand of bouillon and spices that you know is safe for you.
