    Julesong's Note:

    This dish was described to me by a user at RecipeZaar, and after much thorough searching and being unable to find anything resembling it, I decided to go ahead and make it on my own. She said, “My grandmother, from near Kishinev (now Moldova), occasionally made a sweet mashed garbanzo dish when I was very young… It was mildly sweet and could have had a small amount of cinnamon. The texture was like refried beans. There were no eggs, and it wasn't a dessert. It could actually have been for breakfast.” The below is how I made it, and it’s absolutely delicious! I’ve tried it both cold and warm, and it’s excellent both ways. It would make a great breakfast, or a nice snack. Give it a try!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 1

    Yield:

    cup pud ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place all ingredients in a food processor and whir until preferred texture is achieved, occasionally scraping down the sides.
    2. 2
      Eat and enjoy!
    3. 3
      Note: the texture I was able to get it to was still slightly chunky, unlike very smooth refried beans. Perhaps it was from using cold garbanzos from the fridge, or perhaps I simply could have processed it longer. In any case, I enjoyed it at the texture which was not completely smooth. Using a food mill would probably enable a smoother texture.
    4. 4
      Note #2: one person who has made and enjoyed it pointed out that it would be good as a dipper for fruits, or on bagels. Great idea! :).

      One word - Interesting lol Had to try this and I was pleasantly suprised. Unfortunetely I couldn't achieve the right cconsistency because my food processor is crumby, but the flavor combo works very well! Thanks for sharing this! It made for a fun lunchtime experiement. Can't wait to try it with a GOOD processor.

      I have to admit that I thought Julie was just a little... "out there" when she started talking about this recipe. It sounded like she was making sweet hummous! Then she held out a spoonful of it to me and I couldn't not try it. I'm glad I did! It really does taste great, and we'll be eating it again and again.

      This was really good! I stirred in rasins to mine. I was looking for something different to eat, but had nothing in the cabinets, and this worked perfectly. It does have an odd chickpea-like texture, but taste wise it is great. Thanks!
