I was craving chick peas and brown rice last night. So I made this for my vegetarian daughter and I. It smelled wonderful cooking and was pretty to look at, we both loved it! I served it with brown and wild rice and it was amazing! My husband the meat eater likes it too!! thank you for posting this recipe I will make it again!!!

This was very hearty. I loved the combination of colors and flavors. I subbed a can of mild green chiles for the two fresh that were called for as well as mustard powder for the turmeric. I also halved the amount of cumin. I served it over brown rice to round out the meal. Next time I'll think I'll take Sarah_Jayne's advice and add a cup of chicken broth. Thank you for posting!

Fabulous stew and so colourful. A group of exchange students inhaled it. I didn't have enough chickpeas, so very successfully subbed half with cannellini beans. Thanks, Amanda, for yet another dish that speaks to my tastebuds. Yummo!
