"Vegan Fatteh! (Crispy Pita with Chickpeas and Yogurt Tahini sauce) Recipe is below. ✨ Happy Ramadan to all my friends and family who are celebrating this holy month! I hope you have a very blessed Ramadan filled with joy and good health. Today I made this this popular Middle Eastern chickpea dish, Fatteh. Fatteh in Arabic literally means crumbs. It’s a breakfast dish but you can really eat it anytime of the day. Few years ago when I wasn’t vegan my friend who is from Syria made this for me when she invited me to her iftar dinner. I fell in love with this crispy, creamy chickpea goodness, and since then have been making my own vegan version of it using plant-based yogurts. So here is the recipe. Hugs, Zuzu"
