Sometimes, you have to get a little creative. The other night, I was low on groceries. I had bacon, chickpeas, and a bag of spinach that had got just a little frozen in the back of the fridge. I also needed something quick. I came up with this recipe, and we all really liked it. Even the picky ones.
Chickpeas with Bacon and Spinach
4-5 strips of bacon, cut in pieces
1 (420g) can chickpeas, drained
6-8 cups spinach, washed
2 cloves garlic, minced
Cook the bacon in a large frying pan until crisp. Drain most of the grease. Add chickpeas and cook until they begin to brown just a little. Add garlic and spinach and cook until spinach is just wilted.
Serve warm with bread or just on its own.
