    Zurie's Note:

    Recipe from Abigail Donnelly in "Taste", our favourite food magazine. She says of chickpeas: " ...a brilliant source of almost fatfree, quality protein, packed with cholesterol-lowering fibre, and helps prevent blood sugar levels from skyrocketing after a meal, which should make them a diabetic's best friend". They also contain scarce trace minerals, and in their case it's okay to use the canned variety, as chickpeas need a long cooking time. But rinse the canned variety before use to get rid of excess salt. Harissa paste is a North African paste seasoning available from delis or good supermarkets.

      This dish was extremely easy to prepare, and I like all the ingredients. It seemed to me, however, to be lacking something, perhaps to give it more substance. It was quite interesting to try. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
