  Rinse chickpeas, place in a large bowl and cover with 9 cups water.

  mash them with a fork. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl toss

  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
