I have a weird relationship with chickpeas. I absolutely adore them 95% of the time (see: 31 vegetarian chickpea recipes), but just occasionally I find their texture a bit weird – usually when they’ve been mashed or blended. In other words, I find falafel pretty tricky sometimes, and I don’t really like hummus.
Yeah, I know. Hummus is like liquid (um, viscous liquid?) gold to a lot of people. Sorry about that. The texture just really doesn’t do it for me.
