spinach a la rachel

hi everyone! i hope y'all have had a great weekend. it was a tad chilly in southern indiana, but that didn't stop me from cooking. i made spinach a la rachel. i'm sure it probably has a fancier name, but all i know it as "that awesome shit rachel makes."

maybe it's just me, but do any of you out there think chickpeas look like little butts? point in case is the one sitting over yonder on the left hand side of the photo. i think butts are adorable. anyway, here's the unmeasured recipe:

  • fresh spinach
  • olive oil
  • garlic granules
  • raisins
  • chickpeas
  • balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt
*pine nuts are optional, but i did not have them on hand when i made the dish this time.

wash and chop yo spinach. now sautee it in olive oil and sprinkle in the garlic granules, raisins, and chickpeas. don't over cook or you'll end up with mush. sprinkle with sea salt and balsamic to taste.

Awesome--I just bought some chick peas in the bulk aisle! I usually cook the lot in a crock pot and freeze them in small single serving containers so I can use them over a stretch of time in different recipes :) Thanks for the great idea!

Mmm that sounds good. I think I have all of that too! Yay. I am having a contest with myself to see how little $$ and time I can spend grocery-ing.

You're right! Chickpeas totally look like butts!!! I'm always going to think about that when I eat them now... :)

i never thought about the butt similarity, but now that you mention it... i doubt i'll ever put another chickpea in my mouth without thinking about it. :)

sounds yummy. i had to get a few warmer meals here too because it chilled up this weekend...
