Total Time: 60 mins



250 g dried chickpeas (soaked overnight) / canned

200 ml olive oil

150 ml chickpea water

4 garlic cloves

1tbsp paprika

1 tsp salt

Tahini *optional


1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp ginger powder

1 tsp paprika

1/2 salt

1 tsp cayenne pepper

600 g Pork (diced)

Sprinkle of olive oil 


Preheat oven at 220°C. Put chickpeas in a pan, add water so they are fully covered. Bring to boil and cook for 25 - 35 mins

Mix spices together. Drizzle some oil on diced pork and rub spices on it. Put in oven for 20 - 25 mins.

Drain the chickpeas but keep the water in a bowl. Put chickpeas in a blender, add garlic, paprika, cayenne pepper, tahini *optional (I like to add tahini, but didn't have any at hand, it's a sesame paste and gives a nutty aroma) salt, oil and water. Blend. 

Add more water or oil to get the consistency you like. Serve with Pita Bread and Salad. I also like to serve with Antipasti. Dig in!
