Chickpeas - Soak your dried chickpeas overnight, or 8 - 12 hours, in water. Rinse and drain your beans. Add the chickpeas to a sauce pan and cover with 2 - 3 inches of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a medium flame and simmer 30 - 40 minutes. Taste for a tender, yet slightly crunchy chickpea. Drain the water and let cool.

Alternatively, use 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas rinsed and drained.


Add your chickpeas to a large mixing bowl. Use the back of a fork or potato masher to mash 3/4 of the beans, leaving some slightly whole pieces.
