Creamed Spinach with Chickpeas

My husband loves creamed spinach, but I rarely make it because it’s so indulgent. But when I came across this recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks, I knew it would be a hit!

Chickpeas make this a heartier, healthier version of this classic side dish. It was simple to put together and really tasty. Don’t shy away from salt and pepper to really make this dish pop!

Creamed Spinach with Chickpeas

I served this with Honey Mustard Chicken and some leftover homemade No-Knead Crusty White Bread and it made for a really delicious dinner.

And, of course, I took the leftovers and put a fried egg on top for lunch the next day. It was fantastic! The egg yolk mixed with the spinach and chickpeas… it was just so, so good.

I highly recommend topping pretty much all of your leftovers with fried eggs 🙂
