One pot vegan Spanish chickpeas and spinach

vegan Spanish chickpeas and rice

This quick and easy meal makes a great healthy weeknight dinner and by cooking everything together in one pot you save on dishes too! This is a less traditional take on Spanish chickpeas and spinach with the addition of brown rice, which makes it a more hearty and filling dish. We like to serve ours with crisped up tortillas or some crusty bread on the side.
