    1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in oregano, basil, garlic and pepper. Add the chickpeas and courgette, stirring well to coat with oil and herbs. Cook covered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    2. Stir in mushrooms and coriander, and cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Place the chopped tomato on top of the mixture. Cover, and let the tomatoes steam for a few minutes, but don't let them get mushy. Serve immediately.


    This is great served with rice as a main, and together the chickpeas and rice make for a complete protein.

    great flavours quick to prepare and make  -  09 Feb 2012


    Not bad at all did use the ginger (as suggested by another reviewer) which gave a lot more punch.I would use this as a side rather than a main. But generally a very nice recipe  -  19 Oct 2012


    Really simple, quite tasty and healthy. Next time I think I will add some chilli or ginger to give a bit more kick to the flavour  -  08 Oct 2012
