  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 cups cooked or 1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 to 5 cups fresh spinach
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat and sauté garlic, cumin and paprika for 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant. Stir in garbanzo beans and spinach and cook, covered, until thoroughly heated and spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.

Special notes:

If you’d like to cook garbanzos from scratch, we suggest the larger York variety. Its large size and light texture is the perfect complement to the spinach and spice.
