Chickpea and Bulgur StewLast night I thought I'd like to make something today with chickpeas (garbanzo beans), so I put 1/2 cup in the crockpot (not turned on) with water to let them soak over night. This morning I turned it on high, and after a few hours they were softened. I added 3/4 cup bulgur. When the water was pretty much absorbed, I put the stew in a saucepan, and heated it on low. I added 2 cups of my tomato sauce. And that's it. I thought I might sauté a bunch of vegetables and add them, but the taste is so perfect just as it is, I decided not to. There are already onions, garlic, and tomatoes in the sauce. I just love this stuff, and have been 'tasting' it all day. There's bread rising in the oven right now to have with it for supper.
