Recipe Ingredients for NPR $10 Garbanzo Bean meal

16 ounces garbanzo beans
6 garlic cloves, peeled and whole
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 ounces white bread
2 tablespoons sweet paprika
2 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 pound spinach, washed and cleaned
1 teaspoon ground cumin

Recipe Directions for NPR $10 Garbanzo Bean meal

  1. Drain (put don't rinse) two cans of garbanzo beans and put into 2 qt pan. Cover with water and heat to simmer.

  2. In a small saute pan over medium to low heat, brown the garlic in 1/4 cup of the olive oil. When the garlic is browned, after about 3 minutes, remove from the pan and set aside. Add the bread and brown on both sides, about one minute each side. Remove the bread and set aside.

  3. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Add the pimenton and saffron to the saute pan, and the sherry vinegar immediately afterward to prevent the pimenton from burning.

  4. In a mortar, smash the reserved garlic and the browned bread to make a very thick paste.

  5. Bring the chickpeas back to a low boil and add the spinach. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add the pimenton mixture along with the garlic and bread paste, to create a thick, stewy sauce. Simmer for another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.
