Nigella recipe using pita and chickpeas??

I am soaking chickpeas and I have a vague recollection of seeing her make something with chickpeas and pita bread. It may have been a salad, it may have had some kind of tahini sauce or greek yogurt in it? I thought I could google it and figure out what I saw her make, but I can't. Any thoughts?

  1. Aimee... I'm thinking it was hummus, a common vegan type of dip. Comes from the Middle East. Has olive oil, lemon juice, sometime garlic, tahani. I eat all the time since I'm of Middle Eastern descent.
    Here's a receipe link:

      BH I think you're right. I remember watching her make the hummus and she added greek yogurt to lighten up the texture. She did not add it to the blender, just folded it in. Also, sometimes I add a few pinches of cumin and a squeeze or more to taste of lemon or lime juice.
