Really great recipe, so much better than I was expecting! Forgot to add the red wine vinegar so just used a little balsamic vinegar on each plate. Really tasty and quick.

Made this tonight for my partner and I. I halved the quantities as there were only two of us, but it was all delicious!!! Yum! So easy- took about 20 minutes total (I found I needed much less cooking time than the recipe called for but just judged it by sight). We both cleaned our plates entirely! I will definitely make again!

So simple and delicious. I added a clove of crushed garlic after the onion had softened, pre-roasted the peppers so added them with the chickpeas and doubled the vinegar. Filling, tasty and only one pan to wash up - no complaints in our house!

Lovely and fresh, added some toasted seeds and mixed salad instead of rocket. Hubby loved it...
