I used dried chickpeas (avoiding the added salt problem all together) and it was delicious. I also topped it with toasted pumpkin seeds instead of the peanuts. I added a bit more turmeric, roasted garlic and some cayenne pepper. No need for added fat and calories when you can spice a dish up! - 11/18/11
Sodium: 1,293.4 mg PER SERVING??!! As written, it is HALF of the total daily amount of sodium a healthy person should get in a day. It was easy enough to cut the sodium--no salt added beans, low sodium broth, unsalted peanuts, no added salt at all. Delicious with less sodium. Not so good as written. - 10/5/11
