Thoughts on a substitute for bavarian mustard? Also, instead of food processing the chickpeas, what about a rough chop with a knife after draining from the can?

Im sure rough chop would work, I just like the texture created by breaking them up a bit. As far as the bavarian mustard sub, any stone ground mustard would do. you could easily skip it, but it does add a little zip that balances the tang of the yogurt.

This is pretty brilliant! Can't wait to try it. I'm assuming you are using canned chickpeas, right?
