1/2 yellow onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 can chickpeas, rinsed & drained 2 tbsp. water or vegetable broth 1 tbsp. olive oil 1 tsp. ground cumin 1/2 tsp. turmeric 1/2 tsp. chili powder 1/4 tsp. ground ginger 1 cup mushrooms, sliced 2 large handfuls spinach 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced Hummus, babaghanoush, toast, avocado (optional) Preheat a large skillet and 1 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion for 3-5 minutes or until translucent and beginning to brown. Add in the garlic and cook another minute, until fragrant. Add in the chickpeas and using a potato masher or fork, mash about 3/4 of the beans, leaving some whole pieces. Add in the spices, stirring to combine, maybe adding a tbsp. or more of water (or broth) to keep the mixture from drying. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the mushrooms, spinach and cherry tomatoes, sauté 3-5 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender & heated through. Remove from heat and enjoy on it's own, over toast, with quinoa, add avocado, or dips like baba ghanoush or hummus. It's your creation, enjoy how you want!
