Chef's Notes

Variation
You can make this recipe and add 1 cup loosely packed cilantro, basil, or parsley, or leave out the roasted red peppers and add the herb(s). You can also use cannellini beans instead of chickpeas, or a combination of both!

Green onion substitution
You can substitute red or white onion for the green onion.

Garlic recommendation
If you aren't wild about garlic reduce the amount.
