I have not lost it, I promise — these puppies are good. I found it in Jessica Seinfield’s “Deceptively Delicious” cookbook (which was a disappointment in my opinion). But, I tweaked this recipe to be a bit more healthy and it is a winner in our house. The chickpeas add some fiber and just shrivel up and blend right in. Even your husband won’t suspect a thing.
