Author Notes

This is based on a recipe from the Greek Island of Samos that matches up great with Yogurt & Tahini Sauce! Try them as appetizers or snacks with beer or white wine! You can soak and boil the chick peas or used canned ones. I like Organic canned ones that are preserved in soy water. —Julie Yefsi
