Calories: 325kcal
Ingredients
  • 1 19oz can(s) chickpeas (2 cups) drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 oz spinach
  • 1 avocados sliced
Instructions
  • In a medium bowl, mash the chickpeas with a potato masher or fork leaving some whole. Mix in the turmeric, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat and sauté the onion and garlic until the onion turns translucent and begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the mashed chickpeas and cook for another 5 minutes, to heat through. Return the chickpeas to the bowl and set them aside. Using the same pan wilt the spinach, adding a tablespoon of water. Once ready, divide the spinach between 4 bowls, top with the hot chickpeas, and serve with avocado
Notes
Make ahead: the chickpea scramble can be made ahead of time and stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. The spinach and avocado should be prepared fresh.
Oil-free: for oil-free, omit the oil and instead do a water or broth sauté.
