      I followed the recipe exactly and it was very bland. I was able to save it by adding additional ingredients, but as written, the recipe wasn't very good. There are much better chickpea recipes out there.

      This was a good Sunday afternoon lunch. Simple and quick to prepare and full of good things. Served over brown rice. Surprisingly bland when reheated the next day. Eat it fresh!
