Espinacas con Garbanzos (Spinach with Garbanzo Beans)

Vanessa Moore 7

"This recipe can be eaten as a side dish or as a light meal. It's great with a grilled pork chop and some crusty bread. Its origins date back to North African cultures and is one of the very popular choices of tapas in Seville's bars."
