- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 leeks medium, white and light green parts, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon ginger fresh, grated
- 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes chopped
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 pound kale leaves chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 1 cup light coconut milk
- 15 ounce chickpeas can, rinsed and drained
