Method

  • If you are using dry chickpeas, drain them and cook them for about 25 minutes, or until soft. If using canned chickpeas, simply rinse and drain them.
  • Place the chickpeas in your food processor, along with the onion or shallot, mustard, chilli, lemon juice and about half the water. Process until well combined.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper, add the olive oil and the remaining water a little at a time to reach your desired consistency.
  • Serve with injera or a vegan crepe and a side salad.
  • To make the injera:
  • Dilute the dried yeast in a little of the warm water. Then add the flour and mix, adding the rest of the water a little at a time. Mix until smooth. Set aside in a warm place to ferment for at leat 4 hours. Cook the injera like you would crepes, but only on one side, in a heated non stick pan.
