Number of Servings: 4


    1 tbsp olive oil
    1/2 a medium onion, chopped
    3 cloves of garlic, chopped or minced
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1/4 tsp crushed chili peppers
    pinch of salt
    2 tbsp tomato paste
    1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes
    1 can (19 oz) chick peas
    1 tsp paprika


In a large saucepan (I used a wok), heat the olive oil on medium-high heat; sauté the onion, garlic, oregano, chili peppers and salt until the onions are softened.

Add the tomato paste and heat for about 1 to 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, chickpeas and paprika; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 25 to 30 minutes.

I served over couscous. Think chicken would be good with it also.

  • The crushed chili adds a nice little zip. This dish is very easy to make and it makes a budget friendly meal. I sometimes serve it with couscous for dinner, but I also like to have it on its own for my lunch. It freezes very well. - 8/10/15

  • Excellent&Easy. I used frozen tomatoes instead of canned, and it still turned out great. I stuffed it into a ww pita with feta and spinach - spectacular! Thanks for sharing! - 2/1/10
