These chickpeas with cod have become the favorite dish of the Lent at home and on the way more easy and quick to prepare and eat chickpeas with cod at home. It can be prepared in many varieties with or without egg, with or without cod and you can even add a few fresh spinach.

For Easter the chickpeas with cod stew is a dish required in all houses in Malaga and in almost all the cities of Andalusia, a very traditional cuisine that I reinvented a bit today above all to make it more simple and quick to prepare in a version without c Aldo and also very healthy.

In my case the cod skips lightly with the chickpeas, but if you prefer you can fry it before. These chickpeas with cod are my super quick version of our Malaga vigil stew but without broth.

A dry version to which I add a few eggs to finish. Of course these chickpeas with cod do not replace, or intend to, to the vigil stew, but it is a different way of eating the same ingredients. This time I have not added the spinach, but you can try to add them right at the end so that they are to the take and not too soft
