Meanwhile, heat kale in a skillet over medium heat with garlic and olive oil for 5-7 minutes. The kale will become a brighter green and the stalks will have broken down, being less stiff and tough.

Add chickpeas to kale and remove from heat, mixing chick peas throughout. Using a spoon, remove insides of baked squash from shell. It will remove in strands, just like spaghetti.
