Moroccon Chickpea Stew

My 7 year old son ate this and asked to have it in his lunch. Perhaps it's because I've been showing him Popeye on Youtube... it's got him eating spinach out of the bag!

2 tbsp oil
1 large onion, diced
1/2 head of garlic, cloves peeled and minced
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 x 14 oz can chopped tomatoes
2 x 19 floz can chickpeas (4 cups cooked chickpeas)
3 cups water
salt to taste
6 cups fresh chopped spinach, packed (or use 1 block of frozen spinach, defrosted and drained)

In a large pot, saute onion in oil. Add garlic and spices, cook for 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook five more minutes. Add chickpeas and water, cover and simmer 30 minutes. Stir in spinach and cook until just wilted.
