A delicious recipe I learned from an Egyptian friend. If you don't want a strong garlic taste, feel free to cook the garlic with the onion. You can stuff this mixture into a pita, add a dollop of plain yogurt, and enjoy!

This is great - I didn't have a lemon and made it with lime juice instead but it was still good. Just wish I'd had some parsley on hand. Read More

I've made this dish you can mash the beans with a fork or use an electric beater you can use additional ingredients such as tomatoes I used tomato sauce cause I didn't have fresh tomatoes and cumin you can serve with pita and yogurt Read More

Great recipe but made a few changes. I substituted garbanzos and a lime because it's what I had available. I blended about half the bean mixture to give it a creamier texture like the picture. I thought it tasted a little bland so added a tsp of paprika and 2 tbs of chili powder. It was great loaded into a flour tortilla to serve as a wrap. Next time I think I would serve this with tomato and cucumber slices along with some feta crumbles for a complete meal. Also might add a pinch of cayenne for a kick. Read More

Very good recipe. I used a pestle after it was done cooking and smashed the beans up a bit not too much though and added a bit of Olive oil on top of each serving. Read More

I kept pretty much to recipe except I used lime as that is what I had, and added some coriander, cumin and smoked paprika but not as much of any as I normally use making chickpea (garbanzo) hummus. I cooked my dried beans in Instant Pot and they cooked very fast and became almost mush. I used a potato masher to break up the beans a bit more. Very easy, very nice, and a nice change from my usual hummus recipes. I will be sharing this with my Turkish Landlady. I think she will like it. Read More
