Coconut-Ginger Chickpeas & Tomatoes Recipe

Publisher Photo
This is my go-to quick dish. When you add tomatoes, you can also toss in some chopped green peppers (jalapenos, if you like heat) to make it even more colorful. —Mala Udayamurthy, San Jose, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 12, 2014

Always looking for delicious, nutritious meatless suppers and this one filled the bill. We love exotic flavors and the ginger, coconut, jalapeno, and cilantro were perfectly yummy! I shared it with a co-worker for lunch the next day and it was declared a keeper. I had all the ingredients on hand which made it a great last minute dish, as well.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2014

This is a five star dish. I had it tonight and every one liked it. I did not have a fresh jalapeno so I used my pickled sliced ones and finely diced them was perfect. Will use fresh the next time.
