I love chickpeas and this dish looks absolutely delicious! Yummy!

Was it Jacques' idea for the egg? I've never heard of that addition to ragout before. But the rest looks yummy!

KathyF- It was indeed a suggestion at the end of Jacques Pepin's recipe to add a fried egg to turn the dish into a meal from being a side dish.

Thanks for posting this - I was up a creek without inspiration for my Sunday dinner/weeks worth of leftovers meal and a can of chickpeas. I added celery and carrot and ginger to your recipe. And some curry powder and a dried chili. Left out the tomato sauce as I had none. Delish.

I have made Jacques dish twice and I agree that it does lack a bit in the flavor. Pepin's recipe is actually very versatile and can expand on it in a number of ways. I made the dish and finished it off with some butter, crema mexicana (or sour cream, if need be), and chopped cilantro. I plan to try other additions like adding red lentils and curry powder. I may try another by adding green chilies and lime juice.
