This is one I like from "The Joy of Israel" which my mom picked up for me in (you guessed it) Israel. The authors give credit to the Oriental Jews arriving in Israel from countries where meat is scarce.
Soak chick peas several hours in water to cover. Put in saucepan with baking powder (I used soda), add more water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender. Brown onions in oil in a medium saucepan. Add all the remaining ingredients and continue cooking until well browned. Add chick peas, stirring well. cover pan and cook for five minutes more. This may be served instead of meat.
