Let chick peas soak overnight. The next day drain the beans and put them in a pot with 2 1/2 quarts water. Bring to a boil. When boiling, lower heat and stir in cabbage, garlic, pumpkin, onion, tomato and green pepper. Lower heat and cook at a rolling simmer for 1 1/2 - 2 hours or until beans are soft.
Whisk together the salt,tomato sauce, olive oil, and vinegar. Drain beans and toss dressing over them.
