 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Dried chickpeas


Seasoning Mix: 2 teaspoons salt 2 teaspoons onion powder 2 teaspoons dry
mustard 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon white
pepper 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon cayenne

2 cups chopped onions 2 1/2 cups chopped green bell pepper
IN ALL 1/2 cup chopped celery 6 1/2 cups defatted chicken stock IN ALL 1
teaspoon minced fresh garlic 1 cup apple juice 2 cups finely diced
carrots 1 cup finely diced onion

Day 1: Add enough water to the chickpeas to cover them by 3 or 4 inches,
and soak overnight in the refrigerator. As the peas absorb the water, they
will increase in volume.

Day 2: Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.

Drain the chickpeas and set aside.

Preheat a heavy 5-quart pot, preferably nonstick, over high heat to 350 F,
about 4 minutes.

Add the chopped onions, 1 CUP of the bell peppers, the celery, and 2
TABLESPOONS of the seasoning mix. Stir and cook until the vegetables start
to brown, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 CUP of the stock, scrape the bottom of
the pot to clear all the brown bits, and cook until the liquid evaporates,
about 5 minutes. Stir in 4 CUPS stock, the drained chickpeas, and REMAINING
seasoning mix. Clear the bottom of the pot and cook 5 minutes, then add the
garlic and REMAINING bell peppers. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, then reduce the
heat to medium, and continue to cook for 45 minutes, clearing the bottom of
the pot occasionally as sticking occurs. Add the apple juice, carrots,
finely diced onions, and REMAINING stock, and cook until the peas are
tender, and the liquid is thick and begins to look creamy, about 1 hour.
With this recipe, it is more important to trust your eyes and taste buds
than to watch the clock. Taste a couple of chickpeas; if the flavor is good
and they are tender and creamy, they're done. Serve warm.
