Garbanzos con espinacas (chickpeas with spinach) is a typical dish from Andalucia, Spain. My housemate Elena is from Granada, Andalucia, and today she made garbanzos con espinacas for lunch. There are lots of different versions of the recipe. Here’s hers!

olive oil

onion, one diced

potato,  one diced

garlic, one clove minced

spinach, one bag

garbanzos, about two cups cooked

cumin, a teaspoon or so ground

parsley, about a teaspoon dry

bayleaf, one leaf

white wine, half cup

salt to taste


Fry the onion and potato with a bit of olive oil. When it’s looking golden, add the garlic and let it cook a bit. Then throw in the spinach and let them poach. Add the garbanzos and the remaining ingredients, with just enough water to make it saucy but not soupy. Let it cook for ten minutes on medium heat. Buen provecho!
