Chickpea Stew with Spinach and Saffron

Pin It

I got a few cookbooks over Christmas and now I finally have the time to read them and try some recipes. I cracked open The Complete Tassajara Cookbook today and tried this chickpea stew recipe. Tassajara is Zen retreat center in the Santa Lucia mountains of California. The recipes have a definite spiritual slant to them, with focus on respect of ingredients and on love in cooking. It's very inspiring in that respect. As for the recipe, I like how simple, fresh and elegant it is. I'm looking forward to making interesting recipes like moussaka and tofu pad thai!

  1. Love the addition of saffron - beautiful, subtle, but the color pops!
