Spiced spinach and chickpeas…

I had a bag of baby spinach and I had every intention of making spiced spinach flatbreads, but as I chopped the spinach with a variety of spices, I thought I’d use it differently and create a spinach and chickpea dish using the East Indian Bottle Masala spice mix I made up previously from a recipe by The Spice Adventuress

I chopped the washed spinach in a food processor with some garlic, a good couple of tablespoons of the spice mix and a couple of long red chillies, plus some rapeseed oil..

It smelled amazing!!!

At the same time I chopped a couple of medium red onions..

Ready to cook over a medium heat in rapeseed oil until they softened and started to caremalise. Once they were cooked, I added the spinach mixture and cooked it through..

Then added the chickpeas..

It tasted so good! 

I ate it with some slightly watered down plain yoghurt..

As always, I had leftovers, and it tasted even better the next day πŸ™‚

When Fiesta Friday opens later I shall be taking this along and joining co hosts Antonia and Sandyha and everyone else sharing their dishes. I hope you’ve had a great week, Autumn is in full flow in my part of England and I love it!!!!

    Anything with the word “spiced” gets my attention immediately… πŸ˜‰ I am also in love with your saffron yogurt which I spotted on FB, what a great idea, and the way you can see a bit of the saffron color insinuating into the yogurt white… You are the Goddess of the Veggies

    I also like very much the idea of running spinach in the food processor – brilliant!

    I felt like I could smell it through your photos! The steam coming from the spinach and onions instantly made me hungry! I hope you still make the flat bread version too!
    Thanks Michelle

        Could be, but I find even just the thought of what you’re cooking makes my mouth water. It’s the way you describe it, too, and all the spices and sauces you use. I really need to pay very close attention to you! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

    This is fantastic! I’ve had a big can of chickpeas sitting in my pantry (and by pantry, I mean shelf #studenthousingproblems) for quite a while now, and I’ve been hesitant to use it because I didn’t have much luck with chickpea recipes in the past. However, this looks spectacular and gave me the inspiration I needed! Love all the ingredients in your recipe as well as your photography. Thank you for sharing, and I look forward to future posts!
