Cashew Chickpea Spinach

Prep Time

10 minutes

Prep Notes

You can use canned chickpeas (a.k.a. garbanzo beans), or you can cook some ahead of time. In a pressure cooker (like Instant Pot), they cook fast. Save the liquid (aquafaba) to use as an egg substitute in recipes. 

Cooking Time

5 minutes


1 serving


2 tsp olive oil

1 cup chickpeas, cooked (garbanzo beans)

1 cup cashews 

2 cups fresh spinach

1/2 small red onion, sliced

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 cup tomato sauce 

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt

1/4 tsp black pepper 


Heat oil on medium-low in a large frying pan. Add onions and cook for a few minutes until translucent. Add garlic, salt and pepper and cook for another minute. Add chickpeas, cashews, spinach, tomato sauce and nutritional yeast and combine well. Cook until the spinach is wilted and everything is heated through - just a few minutes.


Combine with rice, quinoa, or other grains for a fuller meal.
