  • Use a spoon to gently mix together the chopped tomatoes, cucumber, onion, olives, feta cheese, parsley and salt and pepper in a bowl. Set aside until needed.
  • Beat the chickpeas, lime juice, olive oil, ground cumin, tahini, salt and pepper in a food processor.
  • Add water until a desired consistency is reached. The correct consistency for this soup is quite thick. We don’t want it to be too runny.
  • Season to taste.
  • Transfer soup to a serving bowls and top with tomato mixture and add some extra ground cumin and olive oil…
  • It is an exceptionally easy and tasty recipe to use up any leftover chickpeas.

Tip

You can remove the seeds from the tomatoes before chopping them! Cut them in half, horizontally and remove the seeds with a spoon!
