Mediterranean Chickpea Spread
This is a great easy and nutritious recipe, enjoy over bread or as a dip with raw vegetables (carrots, fennel, celery). Chickpeas are a very balanced food, completely free of cholesterol, rich in essential nutrients: they have twice the protein of cereals, are a good source of vitamins (especially B group and PP), minerals (calcium, potassium, phosphorus and iron) and contain starch and fiber.
