Recipe's preparation

    Place the drained and rinsed chickpeas in a medium saucepan with 1/2 tspn of baking soda. Cover with about 5cm of water. Bring to a boil over high heat for about 20 minutes. Drain the chickpeas in a strainer and run cool water over them for about 30 seconds. Set aside.

    Combine garlic, lemon juice and salt 10 secs/speed 5. Thoroughly scrape bottom and sides and repeat twice. Allow mixture to sit for around 10 minutes.

    2. Add the tahini. 1min/speed 5. Thoroughly scrape bottom and sides and repeat until thick and creamy.

    3. Add cumin and rinsed and drained chickpeas. 1min/speed 5.

    4. Add olive oil, thoroughly scrape bottom and sides. 2min/speed 5.

    3. Slowly add cold water through the lid while mixing 1min/speed 5.


The light, creamy texture comes from the addition of the cold water.

Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of paprika, sumac, toasted sesame seeds, dukkah or spicy sauce such as shatah tmrc_emoticons.)

Thermomix Model

    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
