    Jamie, this looks delicious! Do you slice or mince the garlic in any way before heating in the pan?

    Is the techina prepared or is it techina paste?

  5. Thank you for the recipes. I will definately get my groceries soon and try them. I am into vegetarian cooking and this type of food is what
    I love.
    Thank you,

  6. 2 tablespoons of cumin? Far too much I would think. Did you mean 2 teaspoons? that’s also a lot.

    • Thanks for the catch I actually think it is 2 tsp (to be honest I posted this a while ago…) it is 2 (15- ounce) cans of chickpeas + 8 cloves garlic + 1/4 cup tahini.
