About this recipe: A casserole of spicy chickpeas with a slight tang, perfect for winter get-togethers in front of a warm fire.
Serve with basmati rice or crispy baguette. Garnish with additional parsley or plain yoghurt.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Should I soak the chickpeas before cooking them? I thought dried beans needed to be soaked overnight. - 21 Jun 2012
Very nice dish, I left out the lemon juice, parsley, feta cheese and olives. The only thing I would do differently, is to pre-cook the chickpeas for 10 minutes before adding to the slow cooker - because I like my chickpeas to be a little bit softer - 04 Feb 2012
Used different ingredients. I left out the parmesan, parsley and feta - it still turned out very well. Great recipe! - 21 Aug 2010
