Fennel and Kale Pancakes
- Prep Time: 15 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 35 minutes
- Yield: Serves 2 1x
- 1/2 cup chickpea flour
- 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- Kosher salt
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and divided
- 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 1 small bunch Tuscan kale, stemmed and leaves torn
- 1 small fennel bulb, fronds (the leafy top) removed, and very thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Whisk together chickpea flour, 1 tablespoon oil, pinch of salt, and 1/2 cup warm water in a medium bowl. Let sit for up to 1 hour, so flour mixture hydrates.
- Heat 2 tablespoons oil and 2 garlic cloves over medium heat in a nonstick skillet for about 3 minutes, until garlic cloves are lightly browned.
- Add chickpeas and increase to medium-high heat, cooking 6 to 8 minutes until chickpeas are lightly browned.
- Add curry powder and toss to coat chickpeas. Season with salt.
- Add kale pieces to pan and cook for 2 minutes, until kale wilts.
- Transfer skillet contents to a medium-sized bowl, add fennel, and toss to combine.
- Grate remaining garlic into a small bowl, whisk in tahini, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons oil, and 2 tablespoons water until thick and smooth. Season with salt.
- In skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil over medium-high, and add half of the flour batter to the center of the skillet until it spreads out to a thin 7-inch pancake. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes, undisturbed, until browned and crisp on the bottom.
- Flip the pancake and cook on the other side for about 1 minute. Transfer pancake to a plate and repeat with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoon oil and batter for a second pancake.
- Top each pancake with chickpea salad, and drizzle with tahini sauce.
- Serve warm.
