spinach and chickpeas curry

Lately I’ve been eating dishes with spinach every day. I even add spinach in my morning smoothie. And all my salads are spinach based. Don’t ask me why but it feels like I somehow I got addicted to spinach. My other favorite food is chickpeas. So I thought why not to combine them and make a curry dish? I love curries but Sean doesn’t really enjoy the so flavorful dishes. Well, that makes more food for me! This recipe comes together pretty fast if you have cooked or canned chickpeas on hand.

3 T.S. olive or sesame oil
5 cups chopped fresh spinach
2 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
1 red onion diced
3 cloves garlic minced
2 ts garam masala
1 ts salt
4 medium size tomatoes diced

Preheat a pan over medium heat. Heat the oil and add the onion. Saute for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 2 more minutes. Add the garam masala and salt and saute for one more minute. Add the tomatoes and one cup of spinach. Stir until it gets cooked 1-2 minutes and then add another cup of spinach. Keep doing that until all spinach is cooked. Add the chickpeas, lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
