Awesome!Exotic flavors but easy to prepare.I added ground coriander seed as I thought it would go well,also sprinkled red pepper flakes as a garnish.Served with lemon rice.A quick and delicious vegetarian meal.Thanks for the idea.

This is a mild flavoured dish that allows the natural flavours of the spinach and chickpeas to shine through, so be sure to use the best of these you can find. I used 300 grams of baby spinach leaves and everything else as listed, serving the finished dish on basmati rice. Adding the juice of half a lemon greatly enhanced the flavour. Next time I might try adding some extra spices and vine-ripened tomatoes.
