Spinach garbanzo curry

Top Review by Lise P.

Loved this! I did have to make few substitutions based on what I had on hand but this turned out fantastic. I didn't have fresh tomato so I used a 10 oz. can of Fire Roasted Rotel tomatoes with green chilies. I didn't have frozen spinach so I used fresh instead. Other than that it was just tweaking the measure to of the spices to my liking i.e.: less cumin because I'm not overly fond of it but more curry powder and garlic. I will definitely make this again. I will try to upload a photo but I seem to be having difficulties with that at the moment.
