  • Soak the chickpeas overnight, then drain and put in a saucepan.
  • Cover the chickpeas with water and bring to the boil.
  • Please note not to add any salt to water as this will prevent chickpeas from softening.
  • Continue to boil until chickpeas are softened which could take at least 60 minutes or more.
  • When cooked, drain and cool.
  • Put chickpeas in a food processor with the garlic, lemon juice and zest, tahini and salt.
  • Blend together and then steadily drizzle olive into food processor while processor on and blending.
  • To get a smooth dip, you may need to add some cold water. Add water, like olive oil, into processor while it's blending until you get preferred consistency.
  • Chop the parsley finely and stir through.
  • Taste to check.
  • Serve with raw vegetables, such as carrot sticks or sliced peppers or, alternatively, enjoy with traditional oatcakes.
