Ingredients

Directions

  • Rinse spinach and let drain in a colander. With water still clinging to it, place half the spinach in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook, tossing with tongs and adding the remaining spinach by the handful until all is added and wilted, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain in the colander. Let cool slightly, then coarsely chop.

  • Carefully wipe out the pan, then heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until the onion is tender and lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in chickpeas, thyme, oregano, cumin, salt and paprika. Using a potato masher, mash some of the chickpeas, then cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Stir in raisins and broth, scraping up any browned bits. Add the chopped spinach and stir gently to combine. Remove from the heat and let stand 10 minutes. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil just before serving.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Bring to room temperature or reheat on medium-low heat before serving.

I like the concept but there are too many competing flavors in this recipe. I won't make this exact dish again. Read More

Very tasty especially with a few tweaks! I am notorious for never following a recipe exactly so I did make some tweaks: used a mixture of spinach kale and collard greens; added crushed red pepper with the spices; used smoked paprika instead of hot paprika and added two dashes of vinegar right before it was finished to give it a bit more piquancy. It was very good and extremely easy and quick to make even with my adjustments. If you accidentally make it too spicy for your partner as I did you can just put a dollop of greek yogurt on top to cool it down. Nice solid recipe. Pros: easy quick easy-to-find ingredients Read More

This recipe makes a ton and the good news is that we ate it for breakfast this morning served with a poached egg on top. Still delicious. Pros: Quick healthy tasty Cons: None Read More
