Chickpea question

burbankfoodie | Jul 27, 2007 08:51 AM

I have a recipe for a Lemony Chickpea Salad that I'm wanting to make for tomorrow mid-morning. Anyway, the recipe calls for 1 pound dried chickpeas, soaked overnight and drained. You then cook them in a pot with celery, carrots, etc. My delima is that I couldn't find the dried chickpeas at the store last night so now I am not sure if I will be able to make the recipe for tomorrow (I won't be starting any cooking until tonight and I'd like to make the dish ahead of time which would mean start and finish the dish tonight). Can I just use canned cooked garbonza beans instead and skip the soaking step that way? Thanks for any tips...
