Delicious cream of chickpea soup with ham from Teruel.
The day before, put the chickpeas in water with a pinch of salt.
The next day, put the vegetables, the chickpeas and the bone of a Teruel ham together in a large saucepan. Put them on the heat to cook until they are soft.
Next, blend the chickpeas with the seasame seeds with a little bit of the water used to cook them in, until you obtain a fine cream.
To get rid of the skins of the chickpeas, pass the cream through a chinese strainer. Then add salt to taste and sprinkle on a few drops of lemon juice. When you serve the soup, put a dash of extra virgin olive oil on top.
This cream soup can be served hot or cold.
