" Middle Eastern " Twice-Baked Potatoes

A delicious yet low-fat twice-baked potato side dish with a blend of classic Middle Eastern flavours: chickpeas, cumin and coriander. Serve with roasts or with your favourite Middle Eastern main course dish. Adapted from "Practical Cookery: low fat". These potatoes could also be served on their own as a light vegetarian meal. In view of the comments by reviewers about the potatoes being a bit dry, I have added a tablespoon of tahini. I have also added some garlic. I'm not sure how the recipe escaped having garlic in it when I first posted it!
