I just had a huge satisfying dinner made just from chickpeas, spinach, and tomatoes – all for about 650 calories. I feel full but not gross, nourished, and content. You could easily have this recipe serve 2, unless you’re as famished as I was feeling after a bike ride and no food all day.
Chickpeas are very quickly becoming one of my favorite foods – you can puree them, sautee them, make them into a sandwich spread or a dip, roast them, put them in soups, salads… expect to see a lot more chickpea recipes on the way!!

I had a nice jar of kale, carrot, apple, lemon, and ginger juice with this. I’ve been having at least one jar of this a day!
