Spanish Garbanzo Beans and Tomatoes

"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."

    Great flavor even without the sausage. I used tomato paste instead of tomatoes, regular paprika, regular pepper. Should have added some acid component, but even with those changes the recipe held up. It's pretty flexible. I drizzled more oil over finished dish and ate with a baguette for a small but filling dinner. Made two nice sized servings. Took fifteen minutes max.
