    Loved the spice combo. Tried this thickened with a little cornstarch & served in homemade whole wheat pita bread. Also wilted some fresh baby spinach at the end of cooking & stirred it in - a nice addition. - 5/20/08

    Fabulous! My whole family loved it. I didn't have tomatoes with green chilies so just used diced tomatoes ,I also added a seeded and diced zucchini to it. Served over brown rice was a meal for my veggie daughter and a side dish for the rest of us. Will definitely make again! - 1/28/08

    The flavors in this are excellent--I would cook it uncovered next time to let some of the liquid cook down. We also used plain diced tomatoes. - 4/1/08

    To lower the sodium, you could substitute low-sodium canned tomatoes, low-sodium vegetable broth, and rinse the chickpeas. This recipe sounds great! I'm gonna have to try it. - 4/16/07

    This was unbelievable. I loved the spices in it, except I took out the coriander. It was just perfectly spiced. Chickpeas and tomatoes are a perfect blend! - 12/30/08

    Used Ro-tel tomatoes and it was very spicy. I'll try the "mild" version next time. Served over couscous it was delicious. Even the teenager ate it. - 5/30/08

    This would have been 5 stars if it weren't so spicey. I thought the flavor was great but it was completely over powered by the heat. My poor husband couldn't even eat it after one bite and kept complaining. I'll definitely make again but be easy on the seasoning. - 4/26/09

    This was soooo good! And so incredibly easy to make! I ate mine with pita bread instead of rice. It was a tad too spicy so I just ate it with low fat yogurt. - 4/20/09

    Delicious - I make a cold salad using very similar ingredients, so I was anxious to try a hot entree version. I made this recipe and served it with brown rice and steamed vegetables (as suggested). The only substitution I made was using plain tomatoes without the chilies. Very tasty!! - 10/12/09

    best way to lower the sodium would be to change the broth to low sodium and use dried + cooked chickpeas instead of canned. - 7/7/09

    The dish was very easy and quick to make. Although, 1/2c. serving sounds small, when you add it with brown rice it is very feeling.

    The only problem is that is was a bit to spicy for children.

    Otherwise, very good. I will be making it again for myself very soon. - 3/26/07

    I made this today--served over brown rice, with a dollup of Greek yogurt on top. I suspended disbelief and added those TABLEspoons of ground cumin and coriander (and fresh ginger). I loved it.

    But, when I added it up, my nutrition data was significantly different-- I goofed and used less chickpe - 12/20/09
