As you probably know the garbanzo beans or chickpeas are very common  in our diet in Spain. Children are used to eat them from baby in puree. It is a very healthy dish but you can get bored. So I have adopt this arab recipe that changes them. 

Como probablemente sabeis los garbanzos  son muy comunes en nuestra dieta en España. Los niños están acostumbrados a comerlos desde bebés en puré. Es un plato muy saludable, pero que pueden llegar a aburrir. Así que he adoptado esta receta árabe que los cambia.

1 cucharada de tahini
2 dientes de ajo, machacado,
1/2 cucharadita de sal
2 cucharadas de aceite de oliva
