used half as many grilled artichokes and 2 cans of chic peas. served with jasmine rice. even the kiddo loved it! easy, fast, unique. also great with a little feta on top.
I just made this to take to a friend, but like it so much I think I'll make it for myself tomorrow!
so easy to make and very tasty. the stewed tomatoes were on the sweet side so i needed to add a little more lemon juice
Great flavors & very easy to throw together! Definitely use no salt added tomatoes & chickpeas, as the olives and artichokes will have plenty!
Delicious and easy to make
