Spinach, Chickpeas, and Feta

I don’t know how this recipe came into our house. It’s not Italian, though the ingredients are mediterranean, and I never had it growing up. But it quickly became a favorite. I wonder if it’s a variation of an Indian dish? In any case, it’s simple to make, and tastes great.

What you need

  • Spinach, 1 large bunch
