Chickpea and Tomato Side Dish


  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3/4 cup chickpeas, washed and drained (if canned)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 handfuls spinach


  1. Heat the coconut oil in a sauté pan for about two minutes, then when the pan is warm add the chopped garlic stirring occasionally for approximately two more minutes.
  2. When the garlic is slightly browned add the tomatoes to the pan, then reduce the heat to medium/low and cook for 5-10 minutes or until tomatoes are soft.
  3. Once the tomatoes are soft, add chickpeas, allowing them to cook with the tomatoes and garlic for another 5 minutes or until warm.
  4. Finally, add spinach and cover, allowing spinach to wilt for another 2 minutes.
  5. When the spinach is wilted, remove from heat.
