Mediterranean Garbanzos

Servings: 6-8

2 onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup vegetable broth
2 15 ounce cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes with basil
1 large fresh tomato, chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoon lemon juice
4 cups packed chopped fresh spinach
freshly ground black pepper

Place the onion and garlic in a large pot with the vegetable broth. Cook, stirring occasionally until onion is tender, about 4 minutes. Add beans, tomatoes, oregano and red pepper flakes. Mix well, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the lemon juice, spinach and several twists of freshly ground pepper. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, until spinach is tender. Serve over hot brown rice or whole wheat couscous.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
