Chorizo, Apple, and Chickpeas With Kale and Cashew Sauce [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
This Spanish-inspired dish is so pretty with its warm, golden stew-like base and its fresh green sauce. And the flavors complement each other perfectly: the spicy chorizo is offset and cooled just a bit by the fresh kale sauce, made rich and creamy with buttery cashews. The sweet-tart apples temper the heat of the chorizo as well, creating a beautifully balanced fall dish that goes together in a snap. I like to serve it as tapas, but no one would take issue with a big bowl of it!

Vegan, Chorizo, Apple, and Chickpeas

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice (a yellow onion would work fine)

  • 1 pound vegan chorizo
  • 2-15.5 ounce cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained

Preparation

Fresh Kale and Cashew Sauce

  1. In a small bowl, pour boiling water over cashews and allow to sit for about a half hour; drain.
  2. Place all ingredients in the food processor and process until smooth.
  3. Transfer mixture to a one-quart saucepan and place over medium heat.
  4. Bring to a very gentle simmer and reduce heat to medium-low, add a couple of tablespoons of water, and stir very frequently to prevent sticking.
  5. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until the kale no longer tastes raw.
  6. Keep warm by covering and placing over a double boiler with the heat sill set at medium-low.

Firstly, how dare you? But if I must, as a yogini, I find myself often pondering life and the cycle it follows for all of us. We're all interconnected. For example, when I see a squirrel happily scampering up a tree, a chain reaction begins in me that causes me to lose my ever loving mind. But then, you throw me a ball, and I'm like OMG! You see? Connections. Bottom line, I hold degrees in cuddling and belly rubs from UC BARKley and HOWLvard respectively, which makes me an expert in being the happiest being ever. I run a tight ship here and only offer kisses and snuggles to those that help my fellow furry-bottomed soldiers out on the field. Namaste.
