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.

I enjoyed this a lot. Love the fact that it was really quick and easy, prefect for a hectic Monday. I messed up and added too much balsamic vinegar and forgot the garlic but it was still tasty.

This is probably going to be a regular in my rotation of meals, especially when I am really busy and want something tasty and light.

Yum, Yumm, Yummy! I added extra ginger because I like it and used fire roasted tomatoes. Thank you for sharing - it's a mandatory meal around here!

This is delicious! The seasoning is wonderful, though if I get in that curry mood, I may make it with a bit of curry powder as well. The green onions at the end are a superb touch, too, adding a little touch of freshness to the dish.

Excellent, excellent. Just the right amount of spice. I'd make this again in a flash. I used fresh ginger, maybe a little more than the recipe called for. Very easy to make too.

We aren't vegetarians but i'm looking for new veggie recipes to use once a week. This was really great and I will definitely make again. Even my husband (who is not always a fan of non-meat dishes) loved it. Made it with Cilantro Rice and this took it through the roof flavor-wise! They really do compliment each other perfectly! Next time I may try adding cauliflower as other reviewers have suggested. Thanks!

This is the only recipe that makes chickpeas yummy. I made a couple of additions. I used leftover tomato sauce instead of diced tomatoes. I also added chopped celery which gave it a great contrast to the chickpeas. To make it thicker, I mixed in leftover rice. The hardest part was waiting for it to finish simmering. This smells and tastes SO GOOD!

I must say this was really good. Especially if you like ginger. I made it from dried chick peas that I cooked than used part of them for this recipe. Did not alter anything. This is keeper.
