First post here, but since chick pea recipes are popping up, and they are my go to place for quick, filling, healthy meals that leave leftovers, I thought I'd post one. I have many, but this is what I made tonight and can remember off the top of my head while holding a sleeping baby.recipe )

Overall, this takes about 30-40 min to make. You can easily double or more the batch, and it tastes better the next day (heat with a moist paper towel on top if microwaving, otherwise the chick peas get hard).

How about something to go with all the chickpeas (which sound delicious)? This is a very easy couscous, modified from a Boston Globe recipe. The only tedious part is slicing the almonds, but you could always just not be super particular about getting perfect little almond-slice shaped pieces.

It's also easy to modify: swap out the snap peas for green beans (or green peas), switch the cranberries for currants or raisins, change the nuts, add cooked chicken or tofu...and so forth.

It keeps well, but tastes best at room temperature, so don't eat it directly out of the fridge - I've been know to give it a few seconds in the microwave, just to get the chill off.
