Hearty Spiced Chickpeas with Beef and Greens

Inspired by a dish we ate on a trip to Spain last year, this chickpea dish has become a staple for us. We’re big fans of dishes that celebrate vegetables in the same way we often celebrate meat as the centerpiece of a meal. Here, they both take center stage. This is the type of dish that can just as easily be a side dish as it can be the main course.

You can easily substitute ground pork, venison, or bison for this dish, as well! 


  • 1lb ground beef  
  • 2 cans of chickpeas, drained 
  • 1/2 yellow onion (diced) 
  • 4 cloves of garlic (sliced) 
  • several large bunches of hearty greens (chopped) 
  • parmesan or other hard cheese 
  • The Savories 
  • The Chiles 
  • salt 
  • olive oil 


  1. Salt your ground beef and season it generously with several tbsp of both The Savories and The Chiles. 
  2. In a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, heat a few tbsp of olive oil and sear the ground beef until browned and cooked through. 
  3. Put the meat into a separate bowl, and add a bit more olive oil into the pan. 
  4. Cook down your onion until it is translucent, then add in the garlic and cook for a few more minutes. 
  5. Add in two cans of drained chickpeas, as well as your chopped greens. 
  6. Salt the entire mixture, and season it heavily with The Savories and The Chiles. 
  7. Continue cooking, seasoning and salting to taste. 
  8. Add in the ground beef and cook until the greens are wilted. 
  9. Finish with some shaved parmesan and serve immediately! 
  10. Enjoy!
