Spinach and Chickpea Dish – Metabolic Balance Monday Recipe

Spinach and Beans are considered anti-stroke foods so why not combine them together into a weekly meal? This week we are serving the two foods together warmed up with some spices, onion and garlic.


  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Spinach (you can cook it or use frozen spinach drained.)
  • Chickpeas (protein)
  • Pepper and Salt
  • Cumin


Heat a pan with some olive oil over medium heat.  Cook the garlic and onion for about five minutes and then stir in the spinach, chickpeas and seasoning. Lightly mash the peas while stirring.  Once thoroughly heated, serve warm.

NOTE: You many want to make rye bread croutons to throw into the dish.
