2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup chopped onion
1 package (10 ounces) frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 can (15 ounces) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon salt


2 cucharaditas de aceite de oliva o aceite vegetal
2 dientes de ajo, finamente picado o ½ cucharadita de ajo en polvo
1 taza de cebolla picada
1 paquete (10 onzas) de espinacas congeladas, descongeladas y escurridas
1 lata (15 onzas) de garbanzos, escurridos y enjuagados
½ cucharadita de comino molido
¼ cucharadita de sal


  1. Add oil, garlic and onion to a large skillet. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes or until onion becomes clear. If you use garlic powder, add it in step 2.

  3. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.


  1. Agregue el aceite, el ajo y la cebolla a una sartén grande. Cocine a fuego medio durante unos 5 minutos o hasta que la cebolla esté transparente. Si se usa ajo en polvo, agregue en el paso 2.

  2. Agregar las espinacas, los garbanzos, el comino y la sal. Cocine hasta que esté completamente caliente, machaca los garbanzos ligeramente con una cuchara. Servir caliente.
  3. Refrigere lo que haya dentro en las próximas 2 horas.


  • Serve as a side dish or as a spread with French bread or pita chips.

  • Add more garlic, if desired. 

  • Cook your own dry beans. One can (15 ounces) is about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups drained beans.


  • Servir como acompañamiento o crema untada con pan francés o chips de pita.
  • Añadir más ajo, si lo desea.
  • Cocine sus propios frijoles secos. Una lata de 15 onzas es igual a aproximadamente 1 ½ a 1 ¾ tazas de frijoles escurridos.
