 Soak 1c. chick peas overnight, then drain.
 Cook in 5 c. (?) veg. broth with 1 bay leaf til soft. (about 2.5 hours)  
 (The veg. broth seemed to add a lot of flavor so I wouldn't just use water.)
 Drain beans, reserving liquid. (I actually used the leftover broth again in 
 the rice & beans recipe that night).
 Puree beans in food processor with 1/4 c. lemon juice (I used a little less
 lemon juice because that's all I had, and it tasted lemony enough for me)
 & enough of the cooking liquid to achieve desired texture (I added about
 1/2 c).  Add grated zest of 1 lemon, 6 roasted cloves of garlic, 1 
 fresh minced garlic clove, *** 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp ground coriander, 
 1/8 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp black pepper.*** At very end, mix in *** 1/2 c. ***
 of minced parsely.
