The Conscientious Cook

Andalusian Style Chickpeas

This is a really quick recipe to throw together and it’s so super tasty, I just love smoked paprika, it brings everything alive! Thankfully my boys loved it but then I did serve it with some halloumi which is their favourite! Guess you could serve with feta and crusty bread would be lovely too.

Serves 4


1 bag of spinach

1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 tbsp cumin

1 tbsp smoked paprika

Pinch of cayenne pepper

3 cloves of garlic, sliced

1 tbsp red wine vineager

1 tsp salt

Freshly ground black pepper

6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


In a heavy based pan heat the oil

Add the cumin seeds and when they sizzle add the garlic and cook until fragrant.

Add the smoked paprika and the chickpeas.

Then throw in the spinach and wilt

Add the salt, pepper and red wine vinegar

Taste and serve – if you want to add another glug of olive oil you can!

Enjoy with a simple green salad and halloumi
