    I think its like ground shit, the one time I tried it, it was in a wrap, and I almost threw up at a dinner party.
    So its got to be good for you.

    If you like it, eat it in moderation. Depending on how it's made, it's pretty calorie-dense since it's ground-up chickpeas with other stuff added.

    its not bad at all; its all protein, complex carbs, and olive oil. i use it in place of mayo on sandwiches. sprinkle some cayanne on top for the win.

    i don't really have measurements, but the gist of it is

    2 cans chickpeas drained
    3 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)
    3 cloves garlic
    dash of salt
    lemon juice
    bit of olive oil
    and sometimes ill toss in some paprika
