This is both tasty and pretty. Kale might be good in place of the spinach.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine yogurt, garlic, mint, and salt in a bowl. Set aside and let flavors mingle.
  2. In a skillet, sauté the onion in the oil over medium heat until softened.
  3. Add bell pepper, coriander, and cumin. Sauté for 2-3 minutes longer.
  4. Stir in the chickpeas and ¼ cup of their liquid. Simmer for 5 minutes, until the pepper are just tender, adding more of the chickpea liquid if necessary.
  5. Add spinach and cook until the spinach is bright and wilted.
  6. Stir in lemon juice and add salt and pepper. Serve immediately on top of the orzo topped with the yogurt sauce.

A quick and easy recipe that's tasty too. The amount written here only fed 2 of us! Could feed 3 if served with bread or salad. Used rice instead of of orzo pasta, and used a lot more mint (we like it!). Otherwise as written. Good recipe - we'll use it again. Thanks.
