Larry's Chickpeas

Far be it from me to offer cooking advice, but this recipe is one of my favorites and one of the few I can pull off without tripping the fire alarm.

Larry's Chickpeas

You shall need:
- One can chickpeas
- Extra Virgin olive oil
- Garlic salt or chopped garlic
- Beef or chicken boilion cubes
- Large skillet or frying pan

Drain the chickpeas and dump them in the pan with just enough water to cover. Add about 1/4 (for a small can) to 1/2 cup (for a large can) of olive oil to the water. Throw in one chicken or beef boulion cube for taste. Add approximately two table spoons of garlic salt or chopped garlic, depending on your taste.

Let cook on high for approximately 15 minutes, or until the liquid evaporates. Stir gently with wooden spoon to cook evenly. The chickpeas should be slighly crunchy on the outside. Scrape off the bottom of the pan too, that's the best part.

Serve as a side dish or a main dish if you like, in lieu of traditional vegetables. High in protein and fiber. Damn good.

hhhhhmmmm i eat hommus all the time which u should know cause its a greek dish and basically the same ingredients except pureed instead of fried. if i had a stove i would try it minus the boulion of course said...

upon second look @ the ingredients, hommus has tahini and lemon juice in lieu of boulion
