This is a yummy recipe, spices very good. Next time I will add more veggies for texture/flavor, or to make more of a main dish.

This was very tasty! I served it on toasted Naan bread and mashed the garbanzo beans a bit. Yummy!

This was quick and easy to throw together and comes from one of my all time favorite cookbooks. I followed the recipe exactly and felt it was a bit on the bland side. Next time I'll take more liberties with the spices for sure. Good basic recipe to play with though. Thanks for posting!

Love this recipe! Quick, easy and super nutritious. I throw a sunny side up egg on top (there goes the vegan) for some extra protein.

This is a wonderfully versatile recipe: it's simple, one pot, flavorful. The ingredients should be in your pantry, so this can be a last minute decision. You can vary the spice intensity, or choose to vary the spices (I followed the directions exactly, so I can really rate the recipe as written). You can vary the texture, by how long you choose to simmer the chickpeas or by using a spoon to crush some. Best of all, once you know your own stovetop, so you know how much time you'll need for all the water to be absorbed), this recipe takes no real attention or effort. Oh, and the taste is wonderful -- even my son, not a great veggie eater, asked for seconds for this one. Definitely a keeper ... and a recipe that I will use frequently. BTW, if you want to save a little more money, but plan a little in advance ... soak dried chickpeas overnight instead of using canned. Made for PAC Fall 2008. Photos pending.

This was soooo good! I added more spices and garlic to give it more flavor, and used leftover pasta sauce instead of opening a new tomato paste. Delicious!

This was my first attempt at cooking with quinoa and I'm so glad I chose this as my debut recipe! Sooooo delicious; I was going, "mmm, mmm..." the whole time I was eating it! Lol The recipe is delicious as is but I can't wait to try it with varying veggies and spices. Great recipe!

Thank you for posting this recipe. It's very easy to make and the flavors are wonderful. I added roasted carrots and broccoli for added color and flavor.
