Serves 4

  • 2 tins chickpeas, rinsed thoroughly
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 400g pasta (any pasta will work)
  • 1 cup finely chopped parsley
  • ½ cup olive oil for cooking and dressing
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl, add the chickpeas, crushed garlic, half of the juice of the lemon and ¼ cup of olive oil, cover and place in the fridge to marinate for a few hours or as long as you have, 20 minutes will be fine if that is all you have.
  2. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet, drain and then tip back into the pot.
  3. Heat the pot over medium heat and add the chickpeas, ensuring you tip all the olive oil into the pot, stir occasionally making sure the pasta doesn’t stick.
  4. Once the chickpeas are heated through, add the remaining olive oil, lemon juice and parsley and stir through.
  5. Serve immediately with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese if you like.
