- 1 ¼ cups dried chickpeas

- Rinse chickpeas and place in a large bowl. Fill with water to cover chickpeas two times over. Soak at least eight hours, then rinse. Boil in fresh water until chickpeas have doubled in size — about two hours. Drain.
- Measure out half of the chickpeas and puree. In a pot, combine the pureed and whole chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, and parsley. Add enough water to cover the pea mixture plus one inch. Stir well. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes.
