After 2 days of cold rain, which is not so common, I needed a sunny and warm dish. Since I just bought Koganei-grown spinach I come up with the idea of chick peas and spinach soup. And the idea went very well for a ready-in-ten-minutes dinner!
I cut roughly the spinach and boiled them in water where I've added a few carvi seeds and veggie consommé. In the mean time I've cooked some couscous with a few sultanas and pine nuts, and a bit of olive oil. When the spinach were soft I've added drained tinned chick peas (yes! Sometimes canned ingredients can be of tremendous help!!). And it's ready!!! The slightly spicy soup goes very well with the slightly sweet semolina, a perfect match!
