Mash the garlic to a paste with kosher salt and pepper using a mortar and pestle (or mince and mash with a large knife) then whisk paste together with lemon juice and oil until well blended. Toss with chickpeas, then mash with a fork until mixture just holds together. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour for flavors to develop. Stir in mint. Serve with Spiced Pita Toasts.
