1 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
2 tab vegetable broth (I used water)
1 tabground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp turmeric

1 14.5 oz can garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
1 4oz can chopped green chilies (Me--use more like 2 ounces)
1 cup water
4 cups coarsed, chopped spinach
2-3 tab chopped fresh cilantro
