  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • salt optional


  • Rinse chickpeas under water in a mesh strainer.
  • Put chickpeas into blender with the lemon juice.
  • Blend to desired consistency.


This puree stays good in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months.  When defrosting these cubes, the puree might be a little bit thick.  You can thin it out by pairing with a thinner puree, or by adding a bit of liquid (water, formula, breast milk, etc).
