If you don’t want to use canned chickpeas, you should do some Homework first: cook chickpeas when you have a bit more time at your disposal and have them ready for sandwiches & salads during the week. Store your ready (cooked, drained and chilled) chickpeas in a glass container in the fridge for several days.
