What do chickpeas taste like? I have never had them nor have I ever seen them that I know of.

I'm an Israeli, the name is HUMMUS, NOT Hummas.
Better to prepare it with raw chick peas, soak them overnite & cook in water for 1 hr.
Goes great with a hard boiled egg & with PITA BREAD & few drops of fresh lemon juice.

Bon apetit !!!
