Thanks
Use their other name, garbonza beans and tell him they are Mediterean, which they are in a lot of their recipes, such as falafal and humus

He is on to the humus thing. Humus is one of my favorites, and the mention of it is enough to make him cry :( .

I do not know what to say, personally I agree with you, love it all. If you have a Trader Joe's near you, they have 'flavored humus' go figure as it is already flavored, but they add avacado, sun dried tomatoes, olives, etc. At least then it will not look so pale.
