      EXCELLENT. Canned chickpeas (drained) is fine. Saute onions first before any other step. Ok to delete red wine/sherry and apricots. Serve with plain couscous. Wonderful meal.

      This was SO good. We left out the apricots (didn't have any) and the almonds (forgot to add them); otherwise we followed the recipe as written. It's such a nice combination of sweet, spicy, and sour. I thoroughly enjoyed the leftovers the next day, too. We served this over brown rice, by the way. Thanks for sharing this!

      Made an excellent vegetarian meal served over steamed rice last night. I used fresh lime juice in place of lemon and threw some fresh cilantro on the top which was a nice touch. Would beef up the spices just a bit as we like ours with lots of spice - looking forward to leftovers this afternoon.
