    One of my favorite vegetarian/vegan meals. It's wonderful served with a green salad and soft flatbread. I've provided directions for both stovetop and crock-pot cooking methods, although I originally found the recipe in Judith Finlayson's 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes.

      For the days when I want to eat meatless, this is a STAPLE. I've been making it for about a year. I make this on the stovetop exactly as written, except I add some bell peppers and mushrooms with the onion, add sriacha (hot sauce) or red pepper flakes for heat - and serve with brown rice and grated Parmesan on top. Really tasty, super healthy meal! Thanks for sharing!

      I have tried several chickpea-tomato dishes, and this is by far the best. Very flavorful, though I added about a 1/2 tsp of chili paste for some extra heat. Next time I think I'll try adding a can of coconut milk, as well. We eat vegetarian and vegan as much as we can, and this is a quick, easy, and cheap meal. It worked great in the slow cooker.
