Notes
Moroccan Chickpea Sandwich Tip: I love this served with pita, very easy to handle and in keeping with the theme of the recipe, but if you'd like to use sliced bread; mash chickpeas with a sturdy fork or potato masher, to a thick, chunky paste before starting. This makes for an easier to manage Chickpea Salad sandwich and less on your lap.
