I'll look for it. Cost Plus World Market is opening here this week, I will scan their shelves before looking online.

Not sure if they are the same thing but black peas are something of a Lancashire tradition

Incidentally, re the reference in the above link to Stalybridge Station, if you've ever seen the film "Yanks" (Richard Gere - be still my beating heart!)you'll have seen a bit of the station. The scenes at the end of the film when the GIs are moving out to go to the front were filmed at Stalybridge Station.

The location shots for the film were done in the area around where I used to live. S/bridge was the next town over from the one I lived in and Dobcross, where much of the outside action took place is up in the hills above Oldham.

Sorry, off the point.

Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

That's it and it is my new favorite for my soda stream water. Black chickpeas are usually sold dry in Indian markets. Supposedly one can buy them canned, but I've only seen dry. There is also black chickpea flour.

Black chickpeas might be labeled Desi, Bengal gram, or kala chana. Supposedly they are good to include in a diabetic diet--low GL index. Not the same as black beans, they are chick peas. There are also green dry chickpeas. I haven't tried those yet either.

Thanks for the recipe, GG. It sounds good. I just made something similar to this last week but used orzo, cuz that's what I had on hand, and added some leftover chopped artichoke hearts I needed to use up. Copied and pasted. I need to buy some couscous, I know I've seen it at Albertsons.
