Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a deep wide skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chickpeas and cook, stirring occasionally until evenly browned, about 7 minutes. Remove the chickpeas with a slotted spoon. Set aside.
  2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan.  Add the onions and cook until tender and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.  Add the ground ginger, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne. Stir well for 1 minute. Add the chopped tomato, and cook until they turn orangey red, about 8 minutes.
  3. Add in the dates, chickpeas, and broth. Bring to a boil, then simmer covered for 20 minutes.
  4. Stir in the spinach and cook for another 3 minutes. Serve in bowls over Basic Couscous, top with chopped almonds, parsley, and cilantro.
