• one 19 oz can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup double-strength vegetable broth (in other words, use enough bouillon cube or granules for one cup of broth, with 1/2 cup water)

You may omit the fenugreek if you can’t find it, but it’s worth going out of your way for; there’s just something missing without it. Check some online spice stores for
