Just wondering why you’re using butter beans and not chickpeas as it’s traditionally chickpeas, would this recipe still work if I used chickpeas?

    We like the creamy texture you get with butter beans but you can use chickpeas if you prefer! 🙂

Made this today. It was tasty and really easy to do. I will say though i might steam or cook the garlic before blending, do you think that would work? The garlic cloves were jus a bit ???? for me.
