  1. Place the chickpeas, yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, cumin, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor, and process until smooth, scraping down the sides occasionally. Add the parsley, and process until the ingredients are well mixed and the parsley is finely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a serving dish, cover, and chill for several hours.
