Method

  1. Whisk together 1 tsp olive oil, the lemon juice, smoked paprika and a little seasoning to make a dressing. Divide the spinach between 2 serving bowls.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 tsp olive oil in a non-stick frying pan. Stir-fry the pepper for 5 mins over a high heat until starting to caramelise at the edges. Add the chilli, spring onions and tomatoes and stir-fry for 1 min. Tip in the chickpeas and cook for a further min, then stir in the dressing.
  3. Spoon the hot chickpea mixture over the spinach leaves, then top with the crumbled feta.

This was very tasty.
Soaked the chickpeas as they do taste nicer than the can ones. Made a salad bed from small whole romaine salad leaves to give it that extra something and the portions looked really nice.

Did not like this at all, bland

Mmm mmm. I'm eating it as I type. Very tasty. I used chilli flakes instead of a fresh one. Will definitely be making it again.

A very quick, tasty and healthy lunch. Didn't change a thing

I've just made this for the first time (although used chilli powder as I didn't have actual chillis) and it was delicious! Very filling.
