In a Thermamix or food processor blend:

1 tin of organic chickpeas

1 onion

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 bunch coriander leaves and stems

1/2 bunch mint

To cook it later, make small balls of 1 tablespoon each and put into hot oil ( about 3 tbsp. rice bran oil or coconut oil) until golden brown on all sides (mine were a bit on the dark side, as you can tell). Drain onto paper towel.

salt and pepper

3. Tahini Dressing

1/3 cup hulled tahini

pinch of salt, cayenne pepper and cumin

juice of 2 organic lemons (and zest of one)

1 crushed garlic clove
