Each time we make this dinner it is a little different from the last time. This time we added a can of tomatoes with chiles which gave it a nice zing. Sometimes we add fennel instead of celery, this time we added celery and zucchini. Our finishing greens vary as well—kale, or chard, but tonight I was lazy and just bought a container of mixed hearty greens. So what I am saying is chickpea stew/soup is endlessly variable and always a welcome addition to the week’s menu.
