Bookmarked! This looks great Marc. Chick Peas are my favorite. I use them in everything, though not in this combination.kristopher in San Francisco loved it
I'm gonna try this tonight using green chick peas from Trader Joe's, and minus the broccoli. Hopefully it'll still be good!cincodemayo1 in Los Angeles loved it
