  • 1/2 cup chickpeas, dried
  • hot water, to cover the chickpeas
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 3-4 cloves Garlic peeled
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)*
  • 1 Lemon juiced

Optional Garnish:

  • Smoked Paprika
  • 2 tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted (put into a small pan and toast over low-medium heat until they turn light brown)


  • Soak the chickpeas in hot water for 1 hour. Consider doubling the amount you're making so you will have leftovers for chana masala or other yummy dishes.
  • Once they're soaked, place in an Instant Pot with enough water to cover, add a little salt to taste, and pressure cook them for 20 minutes at High Pressure. Use Natural Pressure Release.
  • Drain the beans and reserve about 1/4 cup of the water. You need about 1 cup of cooked chickpeas.
  • Place all ingredients except garnish in the bowl of a food processor or blender.
  • Process until smooth.
  • Pour into a bowl and decorate with garnish ingredients.
  • Eat.


  • Rinse and remove debris from the dried chickpeas.
  • After they have soaked in water, you know they are done when the chickpeas split easily between two fingers. 
  • Toast whatever nuts you have in your pantry for a depth of flavor and an added crunch to the hummus!
