Title: Chickpeas warren
Categories: Beans/peas, Two thumbs, Soups/stews, Side dish
Yield: 11 Servings
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.
