Directions

Pour olive oil into bottom of medium size saucepan. Heat and then add the onion and garlic, cook until onion begins to soften. Pour in tomatoes and chickpeas, and stir in cumin. Allow to simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Excess water from tomatoes will boil off, so don't cover it! Serve over couscous. Delicious, a great substitute for carb-heavy and less nutritious pasta! Makes 4 servings, 3/4 cup couscous and 3/4 cup "stew."

    I loved this! I also made it with the cayenne, and I loved the flavor, and also not having to worry about the fat in the beef, while still getting the protein. - 8/30/08
