Spanish Chickpeas with Eggs | One of the BEST Chickpea Recipes EVER
These Spanish Chickpeas with Eggs, known as Garbanzos con Huevos, are packed with amazing textures & flavors, made with simple heart-healthy ingredients and all done in under 30 minutes. Serve this dish for any meal of the day, and always next to a crunchy baguette to mop up all that goodness.
To make this recipe I used jarred chickpeas, which is the same thing as the canned ones. Of course you can always use dried chickpeas if you like. Just soak them overnight in plenty of water. Then simmer the following day for 1 to 2 hours or until tender.
What really flavors this dish is the sweet smoked Spanish paprika and the ground cumin. You can add more spices or even use different ones. But by using this combination, which is very typical in the south of Spain, is what gives this dish that Authentic Spanish touch.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: When poaching the eggs, make sure the water is simmering and not boiling. Otherwise the eggs will break apart. You can make the chickpeas ahead of time. They will hold for up to 3 to 4 days in the fridge.

After 3 to 4 minutes and the onion is translucent, add in the paprika and cumin, quickly mix together, then add in the canned tomato sauce, can of chickpeas (drained & rinsed beforehand), the chopped parsley and season with sea salt & black pepper, mix together, then simmer without mixing
Once the water comes to a simmer in the sauce pan, whisk it together to create a whirlpool, then immediately add in one egg, let it sit for 3 to 4 minutes or until the egg whites are cooked through, then using a slotted spoon gently remove the egg and add into a plate with paper towels, poach the rest of the eggs in the exact same method
