  1. thanks for this recipe! much easier than i imagined. do you buy canned chick peas, or get dry ones and cook them?

  2. I cook them...super easy. Soak chick peas in enough water to cover them in the fridge overnight (at least 6-8 hours). Then at least two hours before you need them, put them into a sauce pan, cover with water, bring to a boil. Then turn the heat off and let them sit, covered for two hours. I usually cook more than I need at once and freeze the extra.
