    my kids LOVE chickpeas, and thank god because they always have a ton of organic chickpeas and Kalamata Olive bread at the food bank - about to be thrown out because not enough folk around here eat such things...I think this soup will go wonderfully with the bread! Thanks!

    Very interesting and delicious-sounding, Jim. I can't wait to taste it. I like the idea of serving it chilled with the garnish of yoghurt and mint. Lovely and pretty presentation. I love chick peas crisped up that way. I have made them as snacks before in that way and flavored them up with various seasonings ... delish. Wonderful recipe indeed. Gets a high 5 from me. Thanks, hon...
