It was delicious, and I used to hate chickpeas. I took it to shabbat and everyone loved it even though I was the only vegan their!

I make a very similar recipe..  I also add some cinnamon along with dried corriander and dried cumin. It is delicious! Especially with a lot of lemon juice and fresh cilantro..  I also top mine with small dices of red onion.


P.S I like to add some lemon juice too before serving!  :)
