    Middle Eastern Chickpea Stew


    5 spray low-fat cooking spray
    1/2 medium onion(s) sliced
    1 clove garlic crushed
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/8 teaspoon pepper red flakes, crushed

    1 red pepper chopped
    Handful of mushrooms chopped
    400 g canned tomatoes chopped
    120 ml fresh stock vegetable
    220 g cooked chick peas rinsed and drained

    Coat a medium-size pot with cooking spray; heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, add pepper and mushrooms. Add salt, pepper, cinnamon, cumin and red pepper flakes. Sauté for 30 seconds more. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes. Optional: Top with a tablespoon of fat-free plain yogurt just before serving.

    No reason why you can't add some meat to this - lamb would work well.
