    One Happy Woman's Note:

    I took a Cooks illustrated recipe for tomatoes and combined it with ideas from other recipes on this site for garbanzo beans. Adding the smoked Spanish paprika added a subtle but exotic complexity. This is wonderful as a main dish for vegetarians (without the anchovies), as a base for grilled fish, or add sausage for meat-lovers - Please do not be afraid of the anchovies: they aren't 'identifiable' in this dish but do add to the overall flavor. Small portions would work well in a tapas selection. I recommend using grape tomatoes in this recipe.

      Mmmmm, so good! I had to use regular tomatoes because there were no cherry tomatoes and I left out the optional sausage. The blend of flavors going on here is exceptional, especially the anchovies (which you really can't "taste" but add to the richness). We eat garbanzos regularly, and will definitely be adding this to our rotation. Thanks for posting!

      Lots of assertive flavors, yet they married harmoniously. I used Spanish chorizo for a great one dish meal. Thank you.

      Wow, was this good! Very easy to make, and quite flavorful... The only thing I did differently was to omit the capers, I didn't have any on hand. Served alongside some grilled chicken sausage -- it was a filling and delicious meal! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
