Eh, this didn't go over so well. It doesn't taste BAD, it's just not delicious. It's good, it's very healthy! I served this over brown rice. I used double the fennel & escarole. I cooked my own garbanzos. I did add extra red pepper flakes. It just needed more spice of some was kind of bland with the occasional ZIP from the red pepper. Also, be careful not to overcook the veggies. Made for Go to Saudi Arabia in the NA/ME Forum 6/13.
