Braised Chickpeas and Spinach with Smoked Paprika and Garlic (Guisat de Cigrons)

This Spanish-inspired chickpea stew gets deep flavor from fire-roasted tomatoes and a good dose of smoked paprika and garlic. Toasted panko and chopped smoked almonds sprinkled on just before serving adds nice textural contrast.

Tip

Don’t use baby spinach in place of mature bunch spinach. We found that bunch spinach became tender when wilted, but baby spinach turned mushy in the stew. Don't drain all three cans of chickpeas. One is used with its liquid.

Smoky, unctuous and satisfying stew
I really enjoyed making this. The recipe is very easy and the outcome delicious and a little unexpected. I love the key ingredients and the smokiness, but if smoke isn't your thing, it's not for you. Also, this is where good recipe tips are useful, even for experienced home cooks. The spinach needs to be as called for, e.g. mature, crunchy when raw.

Just made this with chard, and the flavors are amazing. This is definitely in my pocket for an easy weeknight meal, or some meal planning.
