"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!"

"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!"
"Really fun, quick and easy to make, cheap, and full of fiber and other good stuff. I used half a leftover can of chickpeas and whizzed it all up in a mini food processor. Used creme fraiche instead of yogurt too. Very surprising consistency, but doesn'make you think of chick peas as it doesn't taste like them, feels like them though. I successfully got the husband to eat a small bowlful as a snack, so there you go. Would be a good breakfast food on a day when you wanted something substantial. No fat, tons of fiber, it may replace oatmeal occasionally for us."
