Spiced Spinach, Potatoes & Chickpea

You know those days when you just want to veg on the couch with a book, or binge on movies or simply lay there without moving. Those are the days to reach for foods that are perfect to recharge those batteries and are also easy to pull together, like this spinach, potato and chickpea dish. Get your iron and antioxidants from the dark green goodness of spinach. Get your protein, dietary fiber, zinc and folate from the chickpea. The potatoes are there to add comfort.

I eat it as a side or even as a mini-meal by itself. Spinach and chickpeas are cooked together, in every possible fashion, all the way from South Asia through the Mediterranean. There’s a good reason it is so popular.

Portobello Mushroom and Spinach Omelette

This is a quick but filling breakfast option. The last time I made it I used Portobello  mushrooms since I had them on hand and wanted to eat them while they were still fresh. I’m sticking to the Crimini’s bigger, brown sibling in future, it was almost like having a little breakfast sausage in my omelette.
