Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of whole-wheat bread
  • 4 tbsp Tahini sauce (click here to see a homemade Tahini recipe)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 45 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ cup cook chickpea or choley
  • 1 tbsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder, freshly ground
  • ½ tsp red chilli flakes
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. First, toast two slices of bread on a flat pan until crisp and golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, in another pan, add olive oil and saute crushed garlic.
  3. Once the garlic turns light brown, add cooked chickpeas. Cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add cumin powder. Then add black pepper powder, red chilli flakes and salt.
  5. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 mins stirring in between.
  6. Then, switch off the heat and add lemon juice. Mix well. At this point you can crush some chickpeas so that it is easier to put on top of the toast.
  7. Next, on a toasted slice of bread, spread a generous amount of Tahini.
  8. On top of that, add the prepared spiced chickpeas.
  9. Drizzle the leftover tahini on top and sprinkle some red chilli flakes.
