Chickpea & Tomato Curry

Break out of the usual appetizer mold for the next party and create a bright Chickpea and Tomato Curry. Chickpeas simmered with onion, garlic, gingerroot and Fire Roasted Tomatoes in curry powder, lemon juice and cilantro make a great meatless alternative for the holidays. Serve with rice or Indian flatbread. Guests can top with plain yogurt or additional cilantro as they desire.
