Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chickpeas and cook about 2 minutes. Add the spinach in batches, stirring until just wilted. Sprinkle the salt and lemon juice over the spinach mixture and stir once more. Serve warm with toasted pita.
This was absolutely amazing! I had been looking for new veggie side dish but one that was simple and nutritious. This was perfect. Could not get much easier to make. The lemon juice gives such a great tang, and the chickpeas go wonderfully with the spinach. Highly recommended.
Easy and elegant; nutritionally this recipe covers a lot of bases. to maximize iron absorbtion, I sub orange for lemon I haven't heard that lemon does the same. Personally, I use a lot of piquant seasonings, so the milder orange is a nice change up as well.
The olive oil also maximizes nutrient absorbtion, so it's great to see that little bit included in the recipe. Wilted spinach is such a treat, it's a kinda amazing that it can help us so much to have strong energetic bodies.
