Reviews for Mediterranean Chickpeas
"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"
