Notes

You can also substitute the 2 cups of dry chickpeas for one tin of chickpeas for a quick easy snack. This also means you can always keep a tin of chickpeas to whip up a home-made hummus for unexpected guests, or movie night with the family. *Note: When using tinned chickpeas, you can usually reduce the salt added. Try a spoonful and decide for yourself.

2 cups dry chickpeas
