I made this the other night when I came home late from work craving chick peas, but without a lot of energy left at the end of a tough day. It's loosely based on a recipe from "Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant" by the Moosewood Collective, published by Simon and Schuster/Fireside, and it was so good I thought others with eclectic tastes might enjoy it! "Saute" the onions and jalepenos in a little broth for about 5 minutes, until the onions begin to be tender. Add the garlic and cook for about two more minutes, adding a little more broth if necessary. Add the orange juice, lemon juice, vinegar, tomato sauce, ginger, and salt; bring to a simmer. Add the chick peas and bring back to a simmer. Turn the heat down and cook, covered, for 20-30 more minutes for the flavors to blend well.

Serve hot or at room temperature. Enjoy! FATFREE DIGEST V96 #104
