Potaje de Garbanzos (Chickpea Stew)

I took my time liking garbanzos. Whether as a main dish, soup or side served during my Cuban family’s lingering lunches, I’d pass on the smoky garbanzos everyone else was enjoying. But sometimes things taste better with an accent -- semesters abroad in Spain, ventures into Indian food, and weekend meet-ups with friends at the Middle Eastern restaurants that dot my Brooklyn neighborhood changed my mind. Now I can think of nothing better than standing over a pot of plumped-up chickpeas, sautéed peppers and spicy chorizo, working out ways to deepen the flavors and rediscover the textures I found so overwhelming before. With a newfound appreciation, Potaje de Garbanzos has become my favorite recipe to make when I’m trying to make my way home. --Ana Pelaez, Hungry Sofia
