 Categories: Main dish, Vegetarian, Low-fat
      Yield: 6 Servings
 
      3 c  Dried chickpeas
      2 ts Dried sage
      5 ea Bay leaves
    1/4 ts Salt
      1 pn Freshly ground black pepper
      4 md Tomatoes, seeded & diced

  Rinse chickpeas, place in a large bowl and cover with 9 cups water.
  Refrigerate and let soak overnight. In a large pot, bring two quarts
  of water to a boil.  Add sage and bay leaves. Drain chickpeas and
  rinse well. Add chickpeas to boiling water and cook until they are
  soft, about 30 to 45 minutes.  Drain chickpeas, reserving 2 cups of
  cooking liquid. Sprinkle chickpeas with salt and pepper, and lightly
  mash them with a fork. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl toss
  tomatoes with garlic and parsley. Add cooled chickpeas and toss with
  just enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten.  Add vinegar to
  taste. Bring a small saucepan of salted water to a boil.  Fill a
  large bowl with ice water and set aside. Place escarole leaves in a
  strainer and submerge in boiling water until leaves are soft, about 2
  minutes. Remove leaves from water and immediately plunge them into
  ice water. Drain and pat dry. Lay leaves out flat nad place about 2
  or 3 tablespoons of chickpea mixture at broad end of each leaf. Roll
  up like a cigar, turning sides in to enclose filling. Serve at room
  temperature.
