    1       c            Chickpeas, dried
      1/4   c            Parsley, finely chopped
      1/4   c            Onion, finely chopped
      1/2   ts           Garlic, finely chopped
    3       tb           Lemon juice, fresh
    2       tb           Olive oil
      1/2   ts           Salt
            pn           Cayenne pepper
   Starting a day ahead, wash the chick-peas in a sieve under cold
   running water, then place them in a large bowl or pan and add enough
   cold water to cover them by 2 inches.  Soak at room temperature for
   at least 12 hours. Drain the peas and place them in a small, heavy
   saucepan. Add enough fresh water to cover them completely and bring
   to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer partially
   covered for about 1 1/2 hours, replenishing the liquid with boiling
   water from time to time if necessary to keep the peas covered
   throughout the cooking period. When done, the peas should be tender
   to the bite but still somewhat firm. Drain and cool to room
   temperature. Just before serving, combine the parsley, onions,
   garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and cayenne pepper in a salad
   bowl, and beat them together with a fork.  Add the chick-peas and
   toss gently to coat the peas evenly with the dressing.  Taste for
