Olive Oil Baked Chickpeas with Eggs, Spinach and Sumac

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes


  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained; or 1 cup cooked
  • 1 handful spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tsp sumac, (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt, sea
  • pepper, black
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, extra virgin
  • 2 large eggs

Optional Toppings:

  • sumac, additional
  • green onions, sliced
  • avocado, sliced
  • spoonful harissa paste, or pesto or another sauce of your choice


  • Pre-heat the oven to 425ºF
  • Place the chickpeas and spinach into a small baking dish, add the sumac (if using), paprika, salt, pepper and olive oil. Place in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove, and carefully crack the two eggs over the chickpeas and return to the oven. Bake for another 5-8 minutes. Check it at 5 minutes, and if the eggs are too jiggly and not cooked, return for another 2-3. You want the whites to be cooked, but the yolk to be a little runny. Serve right away, and top with any additional toppings you like.
