This was pretty okay for a quick and easy dinner, but I felt the vinegar overpowered all the other flavours. The chickpeas seemed a little out of place among the italian herbs and tomatoes, but the garlic added a lot of flavour. I'd like to give this a shot with some oregano, paprika, and maybe even some cumin.
