I more or less halved the recipe and my son and I enjoyed it for a light supper. I had some frozen whole tomatoes, so used those instead of the tomato sauce. For the veggie broth, I used some of the tomato juice and some of the liquid from the garbanzo beans. Thanks! Made for ZWT 2013, Zingo for team Hot Stuff.

This is fantastic. I made as written and flavor was great. Next time I will cook the liquid down a little more, as it was runny. I added some grilled chicken over the top, which was a nice addition.
