This was a pretty good soup. I used dry garbanzos so I quick-soaked them (boiled for a couple minutes and let sit a couple hours in the hot water). They were still not quite tender enough, but...

Excellent! I did use chicken broth instead of water and substituted the carrots with Ukrainian sausage. I substituted the red pepper flakes with cayenne pepper. Yum!

I like it, but it would've been better with a little less tomato in it. I used chicken stock instead of water. Overall - it was good for a cold day! I liked the rice in it!
