Chickpea and Spinach Curry

Photo: Randy Mayor; Styling: Melanie J. Clarke

Lots of fresh spinach brings the green to this chickpea dish, and curry livens up the flavor. This fiber-rich dish is ready for dinner in less than 10 minutes. Serve with warm pitas or over basmati rice. You can top with a dollop of low-fat plain yogurt to contrast the earthy spices.

Yield: 3 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups chickpea mixture)
