  • 1 Italian red pepper
  • 500 g chickpeas cooked
  • 1-2 garlic cloves crushed
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste


  • Roast the pepper in the oven for 10 minutes or until it's completely soft. After it's cooked take it out and place in a sealed container. Leave it while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Alternatively, use jarred roasted red pepper.
  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add to the food processor. Add the crushed garlic, tahini, lemon juice, smoked paprika, olive oil and salt.
  • Remove the skin from the red pepper and add to the food processor.
  • Blend all ingredients until you have a smooth consistency. Add a little cold water if it's too thick and keep adding it a little at a time to get your desired consistency.
  • Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes and serve with extra virgin olive oil or chilli oil on top.
