Most commonly you will find chickpeas tinned. These are great for salads but less so for houmous. Once drained they will need further cooking.


To use Tinned Chickpeas:

  • 1 x 400 g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled


Place the chickpeas in a pan with the garlic and enough water to cover by about 3cm and boil for 20 minutes. This will soften the chickpeas enough for great houmous making. Drain, reserving the garlic and cooking liquid.
