When I buy chickpeas, I like to cook them all at once. This was a great way to use the cooked chickpeas. Totally delicious, even with dried dill instead of fresh since that's what I had. I did add a bit of salt and pepper and topped with a little grated pecorino romano cheese. Yum! Submitted by:

I used frozen spinach because I had some that needed to be used and this was a perfect recipe for it. I also added salt, pepper, lemon pepper, and crushed red pepper. I ate 2 servings as a meal. Yum! Submitted by:

I love this recipe. I added mint and some salt, and did not completely wilt the spinach. Served it with Ground Beef kabobs for a great dinner. Submitted by:

Awesome starter recipe! I added 4oz reduced fat feta cheese, 1 c part skim ricotta and 4 reduced fat laughing cow swiss cheese wedges. It was so delicious and I ate the leftovers for lunch the nex day! Even my picky toddler ate it! Similar taste to Spanakopita! Thinking of baking it in phyllo. Submitted by:

I really like this dish - I love spinach and the chick peas make it a protein-rich meal that is quite filling and satisfying. I added green, red, and yellow bell peppers and tomatoes (cleaning out the fridge :) as well as some Frank's Red Hot sauce. Very good! Thank you :) Submitted by:

This is delicious! I used frozen spinach to make it easier and added some diced extra firm tofu to crank up the protein, and I absolutely loved it. This is one I'll be making again! Submitted by:

Served on wheat flatbread w/ feta cheese and yogurt is amazing.

I could honestly do without the chickpeas, but fiber and protein are good....

I'm betting most of the salt comes from the canned beans. Rinsing them before using them can reduce it or using dried beans you cooked yourself. It's just a guess, but it's the only place it seems to come from. Submitted by:

Where did all the salt come from? It sounds like a great recipe, but my husband has to watch the salt. Any way to lessen the salt? Submitted by:

I made this last evening for a dinner party for some vegetarian friends of my daughters. They thought it was lovely. After I finished cooking the chick peas and spinach I added a little salt and pepper and grated lemon peel. I toped it off with more fresh dill. Submitted by:

I loved it, it was fresh and different. I think what a lot of people missed is salt. I didn't add any as I'm trying to keep it healthy. But what I DID wonder about was how dry it seemed to be. Not sure how to fix this, but it was sooo good! Submitted by:
