2 teaspoons oil
1 small yellow onion
4 large cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 tablespoon grated ginger, from a 3-inch piece
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (can be replaced with normal tomatoes)
1 large lemon, zested and juiced
1 dried hot red pepper or dash of red pepper flakes
1 cup boiled chickpeas
1 cup spinach
1 can coconut milk
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Whole roasted sweet potatoes
Coriander leaves to garnish
Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is beginning to brown. Add the garlic, ginger, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon zest and red pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the chickpeas and cook over high heat for a few minutes or until the chickpeas are beginning to turn golden and they are coated with the onion and garlic mixture.
Toss in the spinach, one handful at a time. This will take about 5 minutes; stir in a handful or two. When all the spinach has been stirred in, pour in the coconut milk and stir in the salt, ground ginger, and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer then turn down the heat and cook for 10 minutes or until the chickpeas are warm through.
Serve hot over roasted sweet potatoes, with coriander or cilantro leaves garnish.
