It is time to brighten up the end of winter and bring to life your family's lunch options. Watch out though, you may find yourself emptying the bowl quickly. Consider doubling the 4 serving batch.
Notes For the chickpeas: Although not at all necessary for this recipe (even unpeeled chickpeas will work great), it may be worth the extra time it takes to peel the chickpeas before using them. The best way I've found to do this is to rub them gently with a dishtowel until the peels begin to fall off the chickpeas. Then the chickpeas can be fairly easily plucked out and transferred to a bowl. If you don't have time to peel the chickpeas, it's no problem - just proceed with the recipe. In either case, it is very important to rub them dry with paper or cloth towels before pan-frying them so that they quickly get crisp on the outside. This recipe was originally adapted from Bon Appetit's Fried Chickpeas.
