Curried Chickpeas With Raisins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by bearwacket

Simple (especially with canned chickpeas), rich, and healthy. Serve with half a cup of cooked brown rice per serving and some spinach sauteed with garlic. Edited 5/5/2011 - You are so right about the cayenne! Sorry about that! That was some kind of typo. I am not a tablespoon-of-cayenne sort of eater, either...

Good recipe! I also thought that one tablespoon cayenne pepper would be too much and decreased it to 1/4 tablespoon which equals 3/4 teaspoons. I had no bell pepper on hand and used tomatoes instead. It is indeed very suitable for a quick meal and goes very well with both rice and potatoes. It also freezes well.
Thanks for posting.
