Recipe Ingredients:
1 cup  Garbanzo Beans
4 cups  Water
1/2 cup  Sesame Seeds (White Hulled)
1/4 cup  Parsley, finely chopped
1 tsp  Ground Coriander
3/4 tsp  Ground Cumin

2 tbsp  Fresh Lemon Juice
2-4 tbsp  Olive Oil for Frying
1 pkg  Whole Wheat Pocket Bread

Cooking Directions:
1.  Rinse the garbanzos thoroughly, and soak in 4 cups of water overnight.(This cuts cooking time by 30 minutes). Cover and simmer about 3 hours, until the beans are quite tender.

2.  Mash the beans coarsely, and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well and let stand at least 1/2 hour at room temperature.

3.  Just before you are ready to eat, pour the olive oil into a large skillet; heat to medium-high. Add the garbanzo mixture and cook until very hot.

4.  Steam the pocket bread lightly, or warm it in the oven until soft and warm. Cut each piece in half, and with about 1/4 cup of the hot bean mixture.

5.  Garnish with lettuce, sprouts, tomatoes, cucumber, green onions, and top with yogurt or sour cream. Makes 6 servings.
