Cold chickpea mash

This dish is a lovely dish to serve on a summer day where you don’t feel like something warm, but still want something filling.

A friend of mine, who was working as a volunteer at the same shaolin temple as me, came up with this recipe. He was not interested in cooking or anything kitchen related, but because we all had to take turns managing the kitchen, he came up with this surprisingly tasty dish. I was impressed with him and I hope he appreciates that i have now shared it with the world. Thank you Joseph.

So on top of it being tasty it’s also very easy to make. Lets get started.
