Gingery Chickpeas in Spicy Tomato Sauce

Gingery Chickpeas in Spicy Tomato Sauce created by urbankiwiii

One of my favorite vegetarian/vegan meals. It's wonderful served with a green salad and soft flatbread. I've provided directions for both stovetop and crock-pot cooking methods, although I originally found the recipe in Judith Finlayson's 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes.

    This was really awesome. As a teacher who is paid once a month, I literally had 1 can of chickpeas and a can of tomatoes. I had to use dried onions and powered ginger. I added some peas to offset the 1can of chickpeas. I’ll be making this often. Can’t wait for my daughter to try it when she gets off work. I made rice to put it over Thanks!

    My sister did this recipe for my vegan niece. When I tasted this dish, I was conquered. The ingredients blend well together... not too much of this or that. Love it as is, but could follow some of the other add-ons mentioned in the reviews, so as, to make it spicier, even though I'm careful when it comes to hot spices. So... as is, is definitely to my taste.

    I have tried several chickpea-tomato dishes, and this is by far the best. Very flavorful, though I added about a 1/2 tsp of chili paste for some extra heat. Next time I think I'll try adding a can of coconut milk, as well. We eat vegetarian and vegan as much as we can, and this is a quick, easy, and cheap meal. It worked great in the slow cooker.

    I enjoyed this a lot. Love the fact that it was really quick and easy, prefect for a hectic Monday. I messed up and added too much balsamic vinegar and forgot the garlic but it was still tasty. <br/><br/>This is probably going to be a regular in my rotation of meals, especially when I am really busy and want something tasty and light.
