1 cup of canned chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans or ceci beans)
3 cups of water
1/2 cup of Tragano Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 large whole onion
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
½ tsp Sparoza 15 Greek Herbs & Seeds Handcrafted Cooking Blend or 1 tsp Sparoza Herbs & Lemon Zest Handcrafted Cooking Blend
The juice of one lemon
Salt & freshly ground pepper
Rinse the chickpeas and drain well.
In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chickpeas, onions, garlic & seasonings and stir well. Add 3 cups of water, stir and cover. Cook on medium heat for 20 minutes.
Take about a cup of the mixture and blend in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add it back to the pot, stir well, and cook for 5 more minutes. Add the lemon juice and remove from heat.
Serve topped with a drizzle of organic extra virgin olive oil, thinly sliced onion, and freshly ground pepper.
Extra tip:You can also enjoy this at room temperature…and don’t forget some fresh, crusty bread to sop up the last drops. Enjoy!
