Chickpea preparation

Soak chickpea in cold water adding 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice at least for 12 hours.

After the chickpea is soaked, boil it until the peas are lightly overcooked. 

Drain them, but save a glass of cooking water to use later.


In a high-speed blender place the drained chickpea, tahin, garlic (it is better to remove the core), sea salt, extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Blend all until very smooth pasta. 

Adding the cooking water (if needed), reach your desired consistency. 

Add sea salt and lemon juice according to your taste.

Serve hummus with your favorite fresh berries or seasonal fruits. We love to serve it with fresh raspberry or grape :) Put pita, toasted bread or some chips, according to your taste. At Paradiso, we serve hummus with our handmade amaranth chips.
