      Eh, this didn't go over so well. It doesn't taste BAD, it's just not delicious. It's good, it's very healthy! I served this over brown rice. I used double the fennel & escarole. I cooked my own garbanzos. I did add extra red pepper flakes. It just needed more spice of some was kind of bland with the occasional ZIP from the red pepper. Also, be careful not to overcook the veggies. Made for Go to Saudi Arabia in the NA/ME Forum 6/13.

      We were glad to find this recipe, since our organic vegetable delivery is overflowing right now with just these ingredients. We needed more oil to prevent sticking, even in a nonstick skillet, and it was a little bland. I should have used more pepper flakes, maybe. I skipped the lemon but it might have been a good idea. Thanks for the healthy recipe!
