DIRECTIONS

  • Drain the chickpeas and simmer in fresh water for about an hour or until tender. Reserve the cooking water.
  • Process the chickpeas in a blender (or food processor) with the lemon juice, tahina, garlic, olive oil, salt and enough of the cooking liquid to obtain a soft creamy consistency.
  • Serve on a flat plate, garnished with a dribble of olive oil, a dusting of paprika and ground cumin (this is usually done in the shape of a cross) and a little parsley.
  • Serve with warm pita bread for dipping.
