We are currently in Kunanurra Western Australia where they grow great chickpeas. I found this recipe on a leaflet in a bag of chickpeas I just bought. Prep time doesn't take the soaking of the chickpeas into account.

  1. Put chickpeas onions and 8 cups of water into a pot and bring to the boil.
  2. Cover partially, turn heat to low and simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Add the potatoes, salt, spices and another 3/4 cup of water.
  4. Bring back to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer on low for a further 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Stir in the lemon juice, check to see if it needs more salt and pepper, then serve with a sprinkle of parsley over each bowl of soup.
