30 Minute Meal Idea-Chickpeas & Tomatoes

Hey! I hope you're having a great week. :-)

I had a 1/2 can of diced tomatoes in the fridge that I didn't want to go bad. So I googled "diced tomatoes" and "chickpeas" and came across this simple recipe on Martha Stewart's website.  Thanks, Martha!

Full recipe is at the bottom of this post

Using onion, garlic, salt and & pepper, it took me less than 30 minutes to get lunch on the table.  Instead of using mint from the original recipe, I chose basil (my fave) and served with rice. 

This meal is great solo, with rice (like I did) or in a wrap.  It's simple and delicious and makes it a perfect last minute lunch or dinner.

If you try this recipe, be sure to let me know what you think.
