Nothing fancy about this dish - just good eating. Round off with some feta cheese and crusty bread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, over medium heat, saute the onions and garlic in the olive oil until the onions are tender.
  2. Add the chickpeas, tomatoes, pepper flakes (to suit your taste), and oregano,and paprika.
  3. Cover and simmer for about 18 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add spinach and cook about 7 minutes longer, or until spinach is cooked.
  5. Add the lemon juice (I usually like to add the juice of about 1 1/2 lemons. Add the juice of 1 lemon, taste and adjust to your own, personal taste), salt and pepper.

We love this dish! My hubby is a vegetarian and I am always looking for easy vegetarian meals that make everyone happy :) The only think I do differently is I use fresh spinach as i do not like the taste of frozen spinach. Like many others I was thinking I was going to need to umph it up a little with more spice, so I had them ready but it was completely not needed. Perfect as is :)

Like other reviewers, I thought this recipe was very good. It is very simple, not a whole lot of prep. I used green onions instead of conventional ones, canned chickpeas and tomatoes, and frozen spinach. I served it over brown rice. I think it would be great in a pita pocket, too. Fiance loved it and expressed a desire for me to make it again.

YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY! This was just what I wanted. I did use 2 bags fresh spinach (what i had onehand) instead of frozen (i think this made it better!) Served with white rice.
