In a bowl, soak the bread in the milk for 30 minutes. Squeeze out the excess milk from the bread (save the milk) and put the bread in a blender with the garlic, lemon juice and zest, almonds, olive oil, and salt. Puree until smooth, adding enough milk to bring to a hummus consistency. Mix with the chickpeas and parsley.
