Whole Chickpea Hummus

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Katzen

Found on Elizabeth Baird's Blog, this is a Syrian version of hummus made with whole chickpeas in Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian. Rather than pureed hummus, this is a chickpea salad accented with garlic and lemon, as in hummus, but with the addition of chopped tomatoes and flat leaf parsley.
