Spicy Chickpeas with Spinach & Coconut Cream

Today’s earlier post of Avocados motivated us to cook something with the super food. Since avocados weren’t available in the Mevo kitchen, we thought to cook something different with the available super foods – Chickpeas & Spinach. After juggling with multiple ideas, we settled for “Spicy Chickpeas with Spinach and Coconut Cream.” It was something like a one pot meal and to our surprise the dish tasted delectable. The addition of spinach elevated the flavors of this dish to the next level. We added a little bit of coconut cream towards the end to really hit those spicy notes. The dish was delicious and we are doing it again sometime soon for sure. It was really easy to make and looked outstanding too. Check out the recipe and you must try this one for dinner today:-
