There is a world of difference between chickpeas prepared from scratch, and canned versions. With the latter, what you save in terms of convenience sacrifices taste and beauty as the difference is immeasurable. An added bonus is the chickpea cooking broth, which is jam-packed with flavor. I often use it as a substitute for water when making soup, pasta or rice, or any dish where stock would normally be called for, such as risotto.
