Also called garbanzo beans, chickpeas are firm and chewy, with a nutty, slightly sweet flavor. They are widely used in Italian, Latin American, and Middle Eastern cooking. If you've tried hummus, you've had chickpeas.

    You are right to add a few more spices. I only added cummin and more garlic and it tastes wonderful. Great with pita wedges or celery spears. Ummm!

    It's a good base recipe, but it's really tasteless unless you add some more spices. I recommend parsley, more cayenne, cumin, and olive oil processed in. Maybe a bit more garlic as well.
