Indian Spiced Chickpeas with Spinach

Hubby and I are still getting settled into our new lives in Ohio. Work has been crazy for both of us. On top of that, our apartment feels very sterile and not very homey. The weather is cold and we haven’t found a home yet. While I know it’s not much to complain about, things are just busy and hectic right now.

So I’ve been especially drawn to meals that come together in a snap and reheat well. That way I can just cook a big meal and it feeds us for a couple days through this hectic time in our lives. This recipe is just an adaptation of this Indian Spiced Beans recipe that I posted a couple years ago. I used chickpeas this time around and added a whole bunch of fresh spinach.

I served this with some quinoa. It would be great with rice or noodles as well. Hubby and I have been enjoying this in our lunches multiple weeks this winter.

1 tsp salt

    This was really good. I made it last night and I called my mom and told her to write down the recipe and to try it. The sausage just melted in my mouth and the kraut did not have the normal kraut taste. This will be a keeper.

    Glad you liked it! I agree the sugar makes it not have the normal kraut taste. Very good.
