3 cups cooked or canned garbanzo beans (chick peas), warmed up in their juices
1 or 2 cloves garlic
2 Tbs. or so good olive oil
3 Tbs. finely minced onions or scallions
1 Tbs. minced fresh sage

Spinach leaves
Strips of red bell pepper or whole radishes
Hard boiled eggs, quartered
(1 can sardines, drained, optional)
A slice or two of red onion, separated into rings

Warm the beans in their juices so that they will absorb the flavors.

Put the garlic through a garlic press into a mixing bowl. Sprinkle with a little salt and mash with the back of a spoon into a smooth puree.

Drain the beans and add to the garlic along with the oil. Toss well. Add the onion and sage and toss again. Season with salt and pepper.

Let stand 30 minutes, tossing several times and correction the seasoning.

Line a bowl or platter with the spinach. Mound the beans in the center and ring with the peppers or radishes and the eggs (and the sardines if you're using them). Sprinkle with the onion rings
