  • Blender


  • 400 g tin of chickpeas Make sure to keep the liquid from the tins when you drain
  • 2 teaspoons tahini
  • 2 small cloves of garlic
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • pinch of salt
  • paprika (optional)


  • Drain the chickpeas from the tin but keep the liquid for later. Rinse the chickpeas and keep a few chickpeas aside for decorations.
  • Add the chickpeas into the blender along with 4 tablespoons of the chickpea water.
  • Add the tahini, peeled garlic cloves, salt, extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice.
  • Blend until smooth. If it's still a bit thick add a little extra chickpea water and oil to get the consistency you want.
  • Spoon into a bowl and add the reserved chickpeas as decoration. Sprinkle with paprika and drizzle with extra olive oil. Serve straight away and enjoy.
