  1. This is fantastic! I’ve had a can of chickpeas sitting in my pantry (and by pantry, I mean shelf #studenthousingproblems) for quite a while now, and I’ve been hesitant to use it because I didn’t have much luck with chickpea recipes in the past. However, this looks spectacular and gave me the inspiration I needed! Love all the ingredients in your recipe as well as your photography. I ate something super similar for dinner the other day, but I used lentils instead of chickpeas! Thank you for sharing, and I look forward to future posts!
