Aromatic Chickpea Tagine (Tagine Bil Hummus)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Engrossed

From “North African Cooking” by Hilaire Walden. This will probaby work with canned chickpeas and since it doesn't include cooking time for uncooked chickpeas, I'm not either.

DH enjoyed this recipe very much. It is very similar to one I make. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the chickpeas in boiling water until tender. Drain, and peel if liked. *I may try this with 2 cans of cooked chickpeas.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, stir in the saffron and other spices and cook until fragrant.
  3. Add the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, parsley, chickpeas, and seasoning.
  4. Cover and heat through gently for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
