A question about a recipe: World's Easiest Falafel and Tzatziki

823c5ac6 846d 4e7c a039 62ecca3bfe83  2017 0425 world s easiest falafel bobbi lin 23796

I have a question about the ingredient "dried chickpeas, rinsed well and soaked overnight" on the recipe "World's Easiest Falafel and Tzatziki" from marisab67.

I checked two different grocery stores in my area (Giant and Fresh & Green's) and neither sell dried chickpeas. Is there a specific chain of grocery store I should try?

They are fairly common in the "bulk bins" sections of groceries. Sometimes labeled garbanzo beans, too.

If you are anywhere near a Hispanic area, they'll be in the section with all the other dried beans. The supermarket near my house has a whole wall of Goya products. They are sometimes also called Chi-Chi Peas.

You may find them in the supermarket, in the 'ethnic' section. I would look first in you closest independent health food store -- support small local business!
