About

For the first time in Traditional Market, I found fresh chickpeas and I immediately bought a kilo. Since I've seen SBD Recipes use a lot of chickpeas. The first recipe I adapted from is Hummus. Since, it's fresh I boiled them first for about 5 minutes.

Since I'm the only one eating it, there's more left-over! I made it into pasta sauce, just added parmesan cheese, and roasted garlic.Place on top of any kinds of noodles... garnish it with fresh basil... A meal!
