Another great recipe from Canadian Living - this one packs a lot of fiber and makes for a very filling side dish
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 onion, finely diced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained (796 ml)
- 1 (19 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (540 ml)
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 (8 ounce) bag spinach, I don't use it (optional)
- In large saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat; saute onion, garlic, oregano, hot pepper flakes and salt until onion is softened, about 4 minutes.
- Add tomato paste; fry for 1 minute.
- Add tomatoes, chickpeas and paprika; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thick enough that space remains after spoon is dragged through, about 25 minutes.
This was great! Thank you!
I was looking for a side dish we were served at Bonefish Grill - theirs had no onion and added turkey sausage. The flavor was VERY mild, so if they used seasonings, it was sparingly. I like this recipe a lot! We have made it with and without sausage, and it's delicious both ways!
I loved this! It's so easy and healthy. This could easily be a main dish. I would say the spinach is a MUST, not optional. It adds wonderful color and nutrients. I added it at the very end and just let it wilt. I served this garnished with freshly shaved parmesan cheese. It was yummy. Thanx!
