Vegetarian Spinach And Chickpeas


  • 4


  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 5 large cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1 lb (or more) fresh baby spinach
  • 20 oz (or so) canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 C water
  • 1/2 tsp salt


Heat olive oil in a wide skillet over medium heat. Mince the garlic and add to the skillet, cooking on medium heat until it softens. Add cumin, paprika, and red pepper flakes and stir. Increase heat to medium-high and add spinach, a few handfuls at a time, stirring as you add. It will wilt quickly and become a fraction of its former self. Add drained chickpeas, water, and salt. Bring to a boil, simmer briefly, and taste for seasoning. Serves 4.
