Chickpeas with Spinach

Chickpeas with spinach seems to be a famous recipe; we sure loved it 🙂


  • 500 grams of chickpeas
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tomato, grated
  • 1 Tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon of brown sugar
  • 2 carrots, one grated and one chopped in small pieces
  • 1 vegetable bouillon cube
  • juice from half of a lemon
  • 10 leaves of spinach, chopped in medium size pieces
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil

Soak the chickpeas for at least 6 hours, it will reduce the cooking time.

Throw away the soaking water and wash the chick peas, peel them if you have to. Boil them in 2 liters of water and remove the foam with a spoon. Then, lower the temperature, add all the other ingredients and boil for an hour and a half, stirring every now and then.

When they are done, add the spinach and some sea salt and cook for 10 more minutes.

Serve warm 🙂 Can be served as a main course or a side dish but they are filling!
