Recipe Ingredients for SPINACH AND CHICK PEA SAUTÃ?

1 onion
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
2 ripe tomatoes
800 g chickpeas, drained
200 ml stock
350 g spinach leaves, trimmed
25 g pine nuts, toasted
1 Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons fresh parsley

Recipe Directions for SPINACH AND CHICK PEA SAUTÃ?

Peel and chop the onion. Heat the oil, add the onion, garlic and spices and fry gently for about 10 minutes until golden. Remove the skins from the tomatoes by immersing them in a bowl of water for 30 seconds. The skins should then peel away very easily. Chop roughly and add these to the spice mixture and cook for a further 5 minutes. Stir in chickpeas and stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes â?? it is important that the chickpeas are well cooked! Shred the spinach leaves and stir into the mixture and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the spinach has wilted. Finally stir in the pine nuts and season with the salt and pepper. Serve piping hot, sprinkled with the fresh parsley.
