Directions

Soak the chickpeas overnight to soften them. Then boil them until tender. (canned chickpeas may be used, which will eliminate this step)

Simmer for about 30 minutes. Remove from heat, add salt and pepper and then lemon juice.

  • Absolutely delicious; both hearty and savory. The recipe omitted 1tsp basil, and the fact that 1 lemon = 3 tbsp lemon juice. - 7/9/08
