Arabian spinach

Arabian spinach is a good side dish. It could be served over brown rice or brown rice on the side.


  • 1 TB olive oil 
  • 1 onion, sliced 
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (add more depending on your taste) 
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds 
  • 1 big bag spinach (14 oz.) 
  • 1 can or box (15 oz.) organic garbanzo beans 
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 Tb of vegan butter

Heat the oil and saute the onion for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cumin seeds for another minute. Add the spinach in batches until tender. Don't overcook it.

In the meantime, open the garbanzo can, drain, and rinse the garbanzos. Add them to the spinach and sprinkle with pepper. You can drain the liquid or serve it wet.

Mix a tablespoon of vegan butter when finished.

Serve with brown rice on the side or make a well on it.
