This is a very good recipe for a lunch. I was out of chickpeas so I used white beans and it was still wonderful. The garlic was way too strong though; I'm not sure I'll ever get the garlic flavor out of my mouth! Next time I will use half the garlic.

We loved this recipe. It had a nice zest to it with the lemon, garlic and yogurt. I didn't measure any of the ingredients so there's a chance I used more dill than I would have if I measured. I toasted the pitas and added slices of cucumber on top. Will definitely make again. We didn't find this bland at all, and we like a lot of zest, spice, and flavor.

Definately worth a try...I added scallion greens to give it a little more kick. Made the recipe and brought it to work. Definately will make again:)

Very bland on its own. I added some curry powder, cumin and coriander and it was better. I would not make it as is.

This was really good - Have a hard time rating a sandwich of any kind more than 3 times, because after all, it is a sandwich. But this was easy to make, and very yummy. Had with a cup of Split Pea Dal for a Meatless Monday Meal.
