spinacas con chickpeas is one of the most popular legume recipes on the blog and for me personally it is a dish that I love. I tried it a few years ago in Seville and since then it is one of the tapas that saves my life when I have to eat in a non-vegan restaurant because they are delicious and because in Seville it is rare to find a bar that does not have them.

Chole Palak (Espinacas con Garbanzos).- El chole palak es una versión india de las espinacas con garbanzos, aunque es un plato picante y más especiado. ¡Merece la pena probarlo!
