This worked great! A few notes: I used about 1 1/2 cups of cooked chopped kale. The recipe isn't quite clear about what to do with the chickpeas. I did start with 1 cup dry, and cook them normally prior to adding when the lentils went in. As you can see from my photo, I used mixed nuts instead of peanuts. Reminds me a bit of a kale dal recipe that I like.
