    Chef Ri's Note:

    This is a wonderful way to serve garbanzo beans, AKA chickpeas. This dish has a rich tomato-cream sauce with a Caribbean flare. Serve with mildly flavored veggies. Fry very ripe plantains and add to you meal for a wonderful sweet and salty combo. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Reheat on the stove by mixing the rice and curried chickpeas, or reheat in toaster oven or microwave. Special Notes: Use soymilk or coconut milk if you are unable to find coconut cream. Beware - "cream of coconut" is sweet, and should not be used in this dish.

      I made this because I had all the ingredients, and it is delicious! I used 2 cups of coconut cream, 1 cup canned tomatoes instead of the fresh, and added a handful of fresh basil at the end. It is rich and delicious. I am definitely adding it to my regular rotation, but might try it with lite coconut milk to reduce the fat content.
