Chickpeas with spinach

Pair with: Amontillado


Cooking time: 2 hours

With its exquisite complexity, Amontillado is able to triumph in multiple ways, contributing its personal touch to a great variety of dishes and especially spicy dishes.



Chickpeas with spinach

  1. Cook the garlic (diced) in a saucepan with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil over medium heat until golden brown.
  2. Add the paprika, stir and add the spinach (finely chopped). Add the water and salt to taste (optional) and cook for about 5 minutes. You can use oil instead of water to cook the spinach.
  3. Add the cooked chickpeas, stir, add more oil if you want (you can add more paprika and salt too) and cook for 5 minutes more.
