Saturday, Sunday, Spinach, Salsa [Espinacas con garbanzos]

A little tapas on the balcony and a protest down the street.

Last night marked our salsa debut in Huelva (with another performance next Saturday!) as 11 of us girls shimmied and pranced around the dancefloor in tiny fluorescent costumes (not flattering on anyone, but funny, at least). It was the end of what ended up being my main “extracurricular” in Spain this year — it’s been so fun dancing with some of my best giri (North American) friends and meeting Spaniards with some of the best dance moves around.
Beer and bedazzling our teeny salsa dresses. A party, really.

And so my second to last weekend in Spain (!! que pena) involved much fiesta-ing, booty shaking, this song (forever stuck in my head), waking up with rhinestones around my bed, and knocking another dish off my Spanish cooking bucket list.  Que buena vida.espnicasygarbanzos!
Not the most photogenic dish, perhaps.  But muy muy rico! One of my favourites here.

The first time I saw Spinach & Chickpeas on a menu, I was not expecting to be blown away by a dish that sounds like the ultimate health food, you know?  But, of course, I was, and it’s one of my favourite dishes here.  I was looking for a Spanish recipe to follow, but came upon Deb’s over at Smitten Kitchen, and decided to follow her lead.  As she points out, it sounds much better to call this dish by it’s Spanish name — enjoy your espinacas con garbanzos!
