Espinacas Con Garbanzo is a common tapas dish in some areas of Spain. The way it is prepared will undoubtedly vary depending on the region, and then it will vary even just depending who is cooking! (every family might do things differently, no different than anywhere else in the world.)
I made my Spinach with Chickpeas simply, with onion, garlic, smoked paprika, and olive oil. I was serving it with Calçots Con Romesco (Grilled Scallions with Romesco), Crusty Bread, and Extra Romesco Sauce on the side. (these 3 posts are meant to be read together for full effect) The romesco has lots of tomato and red pepper flavours, with acidity from sherry vinegar, so I didn't feel the need to add any of these nuances to this recipe. If you weren't serving it with Romesco, you could add a squeeze of lemon or splash of sherry vinegar if you'd like, though even though I have a strong affinity for the perfect balance of acidity in a dish, there's something about just squidgy olive oil coated things seasoned well with salt and pepper. I think I always want crusty bread grilled with olive oil when I'm eating this. Especially with the other tapas dishes I made. Piling all the deliciousness onto bread is perfection!
Don't make this recipe if you plan on skimping on the amount of olive oil. It's basically the sauce, and I'm really generous with it. I want every bite to be lusciously coated or it will just taste dry.

I'm drinking Teeccino herbal coffee as I write this post. If you purchase through my page (by clicking image below to follow link) I make a small commission on that purchase. The goal of course for me is to try and find ways to support my creative work so that I can do, and share, more. I want to share and promote products I actually love and use, and this is one of my favourites out there. (I haven't tried the vanilla nut pictured below)...I'm currently obsessed with their Herbal Mushroom Teas, and Cordyceps Cinnamon Berry & Macadamia Nut Herbal coffees. Delicious.
