Microwave magnificence

This low-prep, high-protein, high-iron, high-fibre warm kale salad cooks in one bowl in just over one minute in the microwave. You’ll need:

A heaping tablespoonful of pre-cooked sausage crumbles (from the frozen food aisle – Jimmy Dean makes a good turkey one, MorningStar makes vegetarian ones if you’re avoiding processed meats);
Several of tablespoonfuls of canned chickpeas (drained and optionally seasoned with onion powder, curry powder, paprika, etc);
Several large fistfuls of kale-in-a-bag (i.e. pre-stemmed and pre-washed, the only prep involved in this dish is getting rid of any tough stems that haven’t been removed).

Microwave the sausage crumbles for about 30+ seconds, or until they begin to defrost. Then spoon in the chickpeas and kale. Microwave for another 30-60 seconds, or until the chickpeas are warmed through and the kale is steamed and has just turned bright green. Toss to coat everything in the juices from the sausage. The end.
