Mashed chickpeas (حمّص كسّا himmis kassa)

A great vegetable dish from 14th-century Egypt, made with chickpeas, walnuts, salted lemons, olive oil, tahini, coriander, caraway, rue, aṭrāf al-īb (أَطْراف الطِّيب), mint, wine vinegar, and pistachios. If you think that you’ve seen this one before, you’re right since it is the ancestor to the modern favourite hummus!
