This chickpea sandwich spread is a very tasty and healthy alternative to less healthy sandwich fillers. It is based around chickpeas and tahini, two of the main ingredients in hummus, and then adds a melody of flavours through the addition of the other ingredients that interact to produce a great tasting result.
