  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 cup canned chickpeas, drained (reserve liquid)

1. Whisk dry ingredients together in a small bowl. Put the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.

2. Add the dry ingredients and pulse until flour disappears. Lightly oil a skillet and preheat it over medium heat.

3. For each pancake, drop 1/4 cup batter onto the skillet, leaving room for spreading. Pat the batter into rounds and cook until the bottoms are lightly golden; flip and cook the other side.

4. Cool slightly before serving and top with chickpeas, onions, and halved cherry tomatoes. For the dressing: Whisk together 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, 1 Tbsp tahini, 1/4 tsp cumin powder, and a little salt.
