This recipe was very easy and quite good. I used red wine instead of white because that's what I had. And I supplemented the feta with a bit of blue cheese because I didn't have quite enough feta. And it was all delicious! I think this dish would also be very good if you mashed the chickpeas slightly and used it as a filling for pita sandwiches (maybe with fresh sliced tomatoes cucumber and???) Read More

This was not good at all. I'm a huge fan of feta cheese and garbanzo beans so it was very disappointing for me. Plus it just didn't look appetizing. Maybe if I had sprinkled the cheese afterwards instead of letting it melt into the goo... Read More

As per my previous posting I'm back to tell you this freezes very well. I froze it in portions (for work) w/ (cannned, rinsed, drained) chickpeas that had been sauteed w/ olive oil, onion & garlic, & with brown rice portions (cooked in orange juice). As always, I let all components come to room temp, then chilled overnight in the fridge b/f freezing. When I re-heated at work the meal was only partially thawed but still turned out well. Of course if frozen/only part-thawed, microwave at Low for best results. Read More

Wow this is delicious! I followed the recipe except for not draining the tomatoes then poured the whole lot over some chicken breasts and baked them for about 1/2 hour - really really good. Read More

Excellent recipe! I followed the suggestions of others and 1)didn't drain the tomatoes 2)added a little extra garlic plus some basil and rosemary 3)added the feta cheese upon serving the dish rather than cooking it for 5 minutes 4) added spinach and mushrooms and 5) squeezed fresh lemon juice over the dish just before serving. Definitely making again! Read More

Very yummy. Went great with grilled tuna. Wouldn't change a thing at all. Make sure you slowly cook the onions/garlic/oregano. It is definately a sweat not a saute or you'll burn the oregano. Thanks much this will be made again. Read More

I was looking for a new chickpea recipe and I really enjoyed this. It was good on basmati rice but also really good on a soft baguette and also to dip my pita chips in. A good excuse to enjoy a glass of wine. Easy and creative! Love it. Read More

This was really good with a little cinnamon and basil added. I did not drain the tomatoes and took the suggestion of one reviewer to add the feta just before serving for a more attractive dish. I think it would also be good with the addition of some currants or raisins to balance the flavors but it is delicious as is. Read More
