An easy way to enhance flavor and appeal to many vegetarian dishes is to add ingredients such as chopped tomatoes, onions, ginger,  garlic and perhaps other herbs  *  This garbanzo bean recipe can be a nutritious snack or a side dish  *  In 2 Tbsp of oil, cook and stirring 1 tsp of curry powder (or chili powder) for a minute  *  Add 1 medium size onion – sliced, 1 clove of minced garlic, 1/2 tsp salt or to taste and saute (while stirring) until onion is translucent  *  Add one tomato diced fine and saving a little for garnish  *  Cook and stir (about 8 minutes) until a chunky curried sauce is formed  *  Open a can of 15 ounce garbanzo beans and drain  *  Add beans to sauce – stirring until the beans are piping hot and covered with sauce  *  Place on a dish and garnish with chopped sweet onion, cilantro and reserved tomato  *  Serve with a some hot sauce, soy sauce mixed with ketchup on the side or a more elaborate chutney  *  Crushed potato chips over each serving is something different  *  I especially enjoy this dish as a side with eggs and peppers and some small sausage –  such as breakfast sausage
