I really enjoyed this for lunch y'day. I couldnt really taste the cumin in it and may increase that next time. Thanks for a super easy recipe!

  1. Soak the chickpeas (if they are not canned) in water for 12 hours. If you use canned garbanzo beans then skip this step and step 2 as here in Egypt we buy raw chickpeas.
  2. Boil the chickpeas in hot water till totally cooked; drain and set aside till it cools down.
  3. In a big bowl, mix the olive oil, vinegar, cumin, salt and lemon; mix very well.
  4. Add the chopped onion and garlic; mix thoroughly and set aside for 20 minutes.
  5. Add the chickpeas; mix well and enjoy :).
