Many restaurants have skillet options that often consist of 50% potatoes or eggs. Don’t get me wrong, these are delicious, but you can get that great skillet flavor on so much more. Take this dish for example, there’s nothing in here that isn’t good for you, and the vibrant flavors all come together brilliantly when cooked together in the skillet. This could easily pass as a meal for breakfast but is hearty and filling enough to work for lunch or even dinner. The garbanzo beans are filling and will please those tummies that feel a need to have meat or tofu with every meal (my husband is one of those, but he said that after this dish he was complete satisfied). I love how the kale and other ingredients got more crispy, yet there were delicious juices in the skillet packing in taste from the onions and tomatoes. The crunch from the pumpkin seeds is a nice touch and gives it some crunch which is always appreciated in my home.

After tasting this you’ll be patting yourself on the back. The ingredients are energizing and satisfying, yet extremely healthy. I hadn’t mixed corn and garbanzo beans together but they work extremely well together, and I’ll be looking to marry the two flavors a lot more going forward.
