Roasted Chickpea and Feta Kale Salad

This New Years Resolution-worthy kale salad is one of my favorite quick dinners.  It is healthy and the roasted chickpeas make it filling.  Not to mention the fact that the roasted chickpeas are an addictive snack on their own.  The spiciness of the red pepper flakes add just enough of a kick to balance out the feta cheese.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pat the chickpeas dry with a paper towel and pour into a medium bowl. Mix in olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Lay the chickpeas flat on an ungreased baking sheet and roast for 30-40 minutes until the chickpeas are no longer soft.  Chop kale into 1/2 inch pieces and set it aside in a medium bowl.
