A 5-Ingredient Dish to Make Dinner Simple

Serve this super simple tasty dish as an addition to a healthy meal, or even as a meal by itself. The chickpeas are a good source of plant-based protein as well as a source of iron, folate, potassium, and fiber. When paired with the garlic, tomatoes and spinach, the garbanzo beans are tasty and flavorful.  


  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3/4 cup chickpeas, washed and drained (if canned)

  2. When the garlic is slightly browned add the tomatoes to the pan, then reduce the heat to medium/low and cook for 5-10 minutes or until tomatoes are soft.
  3. Once the tomatoes are soft, add garbanzo beans, allowing them to cook with the tomatoes and garlic for another 5 minutes or until warm.
  4. Finally, add spinach and cover, allowing spinach to wilt for another 2 minutes.
  5. When the spinach is wilted, remove from heat.
  6. Serve and enjoy.
