    • 2 tablespoons Extra virgin Olive Oil
    • 1 Yellow Onion (Sliced)
    • 1 Red Pepper (Sliced)
    • 4oz Mushrooms (Sliced)
    • handful Pinenuts
    • 1/2 bunch Cilantro (Diced)
    • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
    • pinch Red Pepper Flakes
    • 1 teaspoon Cumin
    • 3 cups Spinach Leaves
    • 1/4 cup Water
    • 1 1/2 cup Canned Black Beans (Rinsed)
    • 1 1/2 cup Cooked Chickpeas
    • 1/2 bunch Parsley (Diced)


    Step 1
    Heat olive oil in a pan and then add sliced onion and red bell pepper and sauté until onion becomes fragrant. Then add in the mushrooms and pinenuts, followed by salt and spices.
    Step 2
    Cook for about 5 minutes and then add the spinach on top of everything along with about ¼ cup water. The spinach will begin to wilt within a minute or two.
    Step 3
    Right when the spinach has started to wilt, add in the thoroughly rinsed black beans and chick peas. Stir a few times to mix all ingredients and then let cook for about 3 minutes.
    Step 4
    Remove from heat and top with diced parsley. Serve while warm.
