This has become one of my staple recipes. It's quick, it's so easy, and it doesn't require special or expensive ingredients. Sometimes I saute the onion first, then add the chickpeas/spices/broth-- I don't use wine or the vinegar. I vary the spices I put in, and it always turns out well!


Loved this quick, easy, and yummy recipe. It's so easy to mix up depending on what you have on hand. I added pasta to it and served it with a simple spinach salad. Yum!


Excellent - a definite keeper! Flavorful with the red wine vinegar, herbs, and onions! Love the creamy chickpeas.

Didn't have wine - used alittle less than 1/2 cup water. Also used 3 TB or so of vinegar, 1/2 cup onion, 1 large can of chickpeas, 1/2 tsp oregano (didn't have basil), and added 1/3 cup red bell pepper.

Red bell pepper adds a nice touch! Served it with bulgur and steamed broccoli. Could also serve it with spinach or asparagus. Cooked a bit longer until the onions were getting more translucent, about 10 min. Love the red wine flavor. Thanks for the recipe!


I second that! I also enjoyed this dish. This recipe is really delicious, quick, and easy. The raspberry wine vinegar I used provided a pleasant taste and aroma to this dish. I will be doin this again.
