Spinach With Chickpeas
This week has been a bit manic to say the least, whilst I’ve been trying to catch up from having the kids home Monday for the bank holiday. I started a big clear out of stuff I’ve been hoarding and I started a sewing project that needs to be finished tomorrow.We all enjoyed using other people’s recipes last week but this week I’ve gone back to my recipe books.
Spinach with chickpeas
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tsp cumin
pinch cayenne pepper
800g canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
500g baby spinach leaves, rinsed and shaken dry
6 sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
1. Heat the oil in a large and add the onion, garlic, cumin, cayenne and turmeric and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes until soft.Add the chickpeas and stir until they are covered in the turmeric and cayenne mixture.
2. Stir in the spinach, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes until it’s wilted.Uncover and stir in the roasted tomatoes, stir gently until the liquid evaporates.Season with salt and pepper.
