recipe portions Serves 4-6



  • 200g dried chick-peas
  • 4 large garlic cloves, peeled
  • 7 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Place the chick-peas in a large bowl. Cover with water and leave to stand for at least 12 hours until they double in size.
  2. Put the drained chick-peas in a saucepan and add twice the volume of water. Bring to the boil for 10 minutes.
  3. Lower the heat and simmer for 1 hour, until the chick-peas are tender.
  4. Drain the chick-peas. Put the olive oil, garlic, tahini and lemon juice in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the chick-peas and blend until they are finely ground. If the mixture is too thick, add a little more olive oil.
  5. Transfer to a bowl, cover and chill until ready to serve. To serve, drizzle with some olive oil, sprinkle a little paprika over and garnish with fresh coriander.
