Cheap Eats: Again with the Every day Easy Cheap Eats

You know what would make this really rock?


Too bad my camera is on the fritz.

So you’re just going to have to trust me that this recipe is good AND cheap.  And it’s from the Every Day Easy Cheap Eats book that I wrote from last time.

Now up:  Chickpeas with Spinach

Yummy AND good for you!

Stuff you need:

3 tsbsp olive oil or butter
1 thick slice of crusty bread in small pieces ( I used some bread crumbs I had already had frozen)
1 lb 10 oz leaf spinach (or frozen chopped is even better, just make sure it is thawed and drained)
8.5 oz chickpeas (if using dried–cheaper AND healthier–soaked in 1 cup water + 1 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar overnight then boiled till tender)
2 garlic cloves (or more!) chopped
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin (ground)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp sherry vinegar (I didn’t have any of this and it turned out fine)

How to:

1.  Fry the bread or bread crumbs in oil until crisp.  Lift out and reserve.
2.  Squeeze out rest of liquid from spinach.
3. Saute garlic in more oil, add in spinach and cook till warm. Add chickpeas and spices then stir in friend bread crumbs.
4. Add vinegar + 2 tbsp water and cook till everything is warm.

Serve!  Easy peasy!
