Recipe by Kiwi Kathy

Simply the best, easiest recipe ever. Delicious and makes enough to feed 4 adults and still have some left over for lunch the next day. Preferably make a day prior to being needed as flavour develops on keeping.

Tasty! I liked the lemony tang. I added extra garlic and paprika plua a dash of cayenne and cumin. Used canned garbanzo beans rather that dried ones and it only took a few minutes to prepare! Thanks, KK! Made for Fall PAC 2012
