Warm Potato Salad with Spinach and Chickpeas

Warm Potato Salad (for FFV)

Ingredients (to make 1 serving):

1 medium red potato, cubed into 1/2-inch pieces (can be left unpeeled)

1/4 cup cooked chickpeas or other beans

1/4 cup bell pepper, chopped

1 Tbsp red onion, chopped

2 crimini mushrooms, chopped (optional)

handful fresh spinach

olive oil cooking spray


1/2 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped

1 Tbsp fresh basil leaves, chopped

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp paprika

pinch cayenne (optional)

salt, pepper to taste


1. Heat up a heavy-bottomed nonstick pan over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Once the pan is hot, add cubed potatoes, spray them with some more cooking spray, stir with a spatula to distribute them evenly over the pan, and cover with a lid. Cook for 8-10 min, stirring every 2-3 min to prevent the pieces from sticking to the pan. Meanwhile, chop onions, bell pepper and mushrooms.

2. The potatoes are going to be almost done when they form a nice brown crust, and slide easily across the pan. If you pierce a piece with a fork, it should go in easily. Once the potatoes reach this point, add chickpeas, cover with a lid, and cook 2 min more.

3. Remove the lid, add onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, salt and all of the spices except basil leaves. Continue to cook another 2 min, stirring often.

4. Stir in a handful of spinach leaves. As soon as they begin to wilt, take the pan off the heat. Serve immediately, sprinkled with chopped fresh basil leaves. Enjoy!
