Nutritional values

Kale is a first-class supplier of vitamins. It scores with gut-flattering fiber and provides the nutrients iron, potassium, and calcium, which are needed for an intact metabolism.

Outside of kale season, you can also turn the kale Caesar salad with chickpeas into a spinach Caesar salad with chickpeas: To do this, replace the kale with baby spinach. Unlike kale, you don't have to cook it, just wash it and spin it dry.

Preparation steps


Cook 4 eggs in boiling water until waxy, 5-6 minutes. Separate remaining egg, set yolk aside (use egg white elsewhere). Clean kale, remove thick leaf veins, pluck leaves, wash and cook in boiling salted water for 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Then drain, rinse with cold water, drain well and pluck into small pieces. Wash the cress and shake dry.


For the dressing, peel garlic and place in a mixing bowl with lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, grated cheese and egg yolk, add yogurt and oil and blend until creamy, adding a little cold water as needed. Season dressing with salt, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper and honey.


Drain chickpeas, rinse and pat dry. Toast almonds and chickpeas in a non-stick skillet without fat over medium heat, stirring, for 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, paprika powder and remaining cayenne pepper, remove from pan and let cool.


Arrange kale on plates and pour dressing over it. Peel eggs, cut in half and place on top. Spread cress, almonds and chickpeas on top. Grate hard cheese on top and sprinkle everything with pepper.
