    I have 2 questions.

    1. How long can the leftovers keep?

    2. I am the only one in my family that will eat chickpeas (or any kind of bean/legume). Is it ok to leave out the chickpeas or is there another veggie to substitute?

    Thanks! :)

    Hi Stacy,
    The leftovers should keep between 3 and 5 days. You can definitely leave out the chickpeas but it would be good to add another source of protein to the dish. Maybe some firm tofu, or a hard-boiled egg.
    Good luck, let us know how it turns out!

    I added some lemon juice to it to give it a zing and it turned out great. Next time, to save time, I'll probably omit frying the chickpeas. Very healthy and good side dish!
