Curried Chick Peas and Tomatoes

Fiona Haynes
Going meatless once in a while is good for our bodies, and a great way to eat cheaply. This curried chick peas and tomatoes recipe is super-fast and super-flavorful, thanks to the curry spices and especially the fresh ginger. Enjoy this healthy curried chick peas and tomatoes dish over microwaveable whole-grain rice.

Good recipe, Member rhonniewilson

Tastes great, fast and easy to prepare. I use home-canned tomatoes and dried chickpeas from the garden, looking forward to making it again later this summer when I have fresh tomatoes. Too bad the recipe suggests serving with microwaved rice, though. Use a rice cooker or a pot on the stove and skip the damage that microwaving causes to your food.
