Place the chickpeas in a saucepan, cover with water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 1 hour or until completely tender. Strain, reserving a little of the cooking liquid.
Place the chickpeas in an upright blender, add the mustard and oil and blend until thick and smooth. Add a little reserved cooking liquid to thin down, if necessary. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.
