Canned chickpeas, also called garbanzos, combine with canned diced potatoes and tomatoes for a flavorful meal seasoned with garlic, herbs, and olive oil. For a complete one-dish meal add a drained can of chopped spinach or even cooked fresh greens if youâ€™re lucky enough to have some.
1 T. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried savory
1/4tsp. or more red pepper flakes (optional)
One 16-oz. can diced white potatoes, drained
One 15.5-oz. can chickpeas, drained (and rinsed, If possible)
One 14.5-oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat the oil in a large saucepan or skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, basil, savory, and red pepper flakes, if using, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the potatoes, chickpeas, and tomatoes, and then salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook until the flavors are blended and the tomatoes are somewhat broken up and saucy, about 10 minutes.
