  • cups dry chickpeas
  • 6 cups Water
  • 1 leek chopped
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • 2 potatoes cut into small pieces
  • 2 carrots cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk optional
  • Olive oil as needed
  • Roasted sesame seeds for garnish
  • Fresh thyme for garnish


  • Place the chickpeas and 6 cups of water into the pressure cooker and cook on HIGH pressure for 10-12 minutes.
  • While the chickpeas are cooking, heat some olive oil in a skillet. Add the chopped garlic, leek, and the tomato and cook for 5 minutes over low heat.
  • Once the chickpea cooking time is done, release the pressure and strain the chickpeas.
  • In the pressure cooker pot, add the leek and tomato mixture. Add the potatoes, carrots, chickpeas, and vegetable broth. Mix well and simmer for 8 minutes over low heat.
  • Blend everything with an immersion blender or mash until creamy. Add milk if desired.
  • Serve and garnish with roasted sesame seeds and fresh thyme leaves.


If not using a pressure cooker, soak the chickpeas for 8 hours in 6 cups of water in place of the first step.
