Per Serving: 153 calories; protein 5.7g; carbohydrates 15.3g; fat 8.2g; sodium 28.4mg. Your potato masher needs to have enough surface area on its business end to crush the chickpeas. Rest the bowl or pot on a cutting board or towel to protect your counter or work surface. Don’t use a non-stick pot because you’d probably damage its surface. The recipe can be doubled.
