Preparation time: 20 minutes
 
Ingredients (for 2 people) :


Method:

Soak the chickpeas overnight with the bicarbonate of soda.

The following day, wash the chickpeas thoroughly and then place in a large pan of boiling water.
Before the chickpeas are completely cooked, remove a handful of them to be used later as garnish.
Keep the heat on the remaining chickpeas until they are cooked thoroughly, then wash them again to remove the skins. The whole cooking process takes around two hours

Once completed, put the chickpeas in a strainer and then add some ice at the top to help chill the mix.
Once this has chilled, put the chickpeas in a blender with the garlic, then mix until it resembles the texture of houmous. Add the tahini, salt, lemon salt and blend until you achieve a velvety smooth texture.

To ensure it retains its flavour, keep in the fridge for a few hours, and then dish it up.

Garnish with paprika, chopped parsley and the remaining chickpeas in the middle. Then add the parsley leaves and a splash of olive oil.
