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 the soup's flavors were good. It needed more water than called for so I also added some vegetable base to give it more flavor (boullion "paste" I use from a jar). I also added celery. UPDATE: I discovered later that dried garbanzos require soaking time (overnight or the quick-soak method I mentioned above), plus up to an hour and a half of cooking time! In the soup they probably only got 30-45 minutes, so that explained their hardness. I'll save time next time by using canned, or plan ahead more!

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 reworked the recipe. Decided that two cans of tomatoes was too much. I also didn't want to use the rice and used onion instead. The response I got from my family was that it was better than they thought it would be. But, I wish the garbanzos had absorbed more of the spices. My guess is this recipe would be better served one or two days later. 1 onion or 1-1/2 cups, chopped 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 (14.5) oz. can Del Monte tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano (no salt added), pulsed lightly in the food processor 2 cups broth (I used pan drippings/broth left over broth from baking cornish hens the night before) 1/4 cup celery, finely diced 1/4 cup carrot, finely diced 2 tablespoons green pepper, finely diced 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon red pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste 1/2 teaspoon black pepper or to taste 1 (15 oz.) can garbanzo beans Saute onion in oil in skillet until onion begins to brown. Add garlic, cook and stir until lightly browned. Transfer to a stew pot and add tomatoes, broth, celery, carrot, green pepper, seasonings and garbanzo beans. Simmer on low heat for about 30 minutes or until carrot is tender.
