Chickpeas and Spinach Over Rice
Serves: 2 servings
  • 2 cups chickpeas (contents of one can), drained and rinsed
  • 1 or 2 large handfuls of fresh spinach, large stems removed
  • OR a jar of garbanzos con espinacas that has been drained
  • 1 crumbled chicken flavored bouillon cube, adjust the amount to taste...usually half is plenty
  • 2 cups cooked rice or 2 packs microwaveable rice (I like basmati), heated
  1. Put the chickpeas and spinach in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Stir in half of the crumbled bouillon cube. Heat until warmed through and the spinach is wilted.
  2. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more bouillon cube or whatever is available.
  3. Heat the rice in the microwave as directed on the package.
  4. To serve put half the rice in a bowl and cover with half the garbanzos, spinach and broth. (Or just dump the rice into the saucepan and mix it all together)
