Smashed Garbanzo Beans

Only have five minutes to throw together something splendid and totally satisfying? Crisp up some sliced garlic in olive oil, add a can of drained chick peas that you’ve half-smashed with a fork or a potato masher, sauté in a bunch of fresh chopped kale or other greens, season with lemon juice, salt, pepper, and you’ve got a great meal. As always, the options for additions are endless: Stir in a can of anchovies when you add the garlic, toss in ½ cup of crumbled feta, and a tablespoon of capers and some hot pepper flakes. Also nice served on rice.
