INGREDIENTS: 1 ½ cups dried chickpeas (soaked overnight) ½ cup fresh spinach ¾ cup crumbled feta cheese ¼ cup olive oil 3 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste) 1 peeled garlic clove 1-2 teaspoons salt ½ teaspoon black pepper Water-as required for consistency
Rinse the soaked chickpeas well, put in saucepan with water to cover all, plus 1 tablespoon salt. Bring to the boil and cook on medium heat for 2 hours or until the chick peas are soft, adding more water if necessary. As the foam rises skim it off and discard of it. Chop the garlic clove into a food blender, and add the tahini, spinach, lemon juice and about 1/2cup water. Leave it to blend until it is smooth. Put the chickpeas into the food blender with the above mixture. Blend until it is smooth, before adding the cheese. Blend again. Add more water until it reaches your desired consistency (different people like a different consistency). Refrigerate before served! Store it in an airtight container. Eat it with any vegetables or pita bread!
