1 tsp soda
200 ml sesame pulp (approximately 1 cup)
salt
3 cloves of garlic
juice of 2 lemons
paprika

Procedure

1. Rinse the chickpeas thoroughly and place them in a pan with cold water. Once they start to boil, reduce the heat, put lid on and leave them to simmer for approximately 1 ½ hours or until soft and tender.

2. Drain the chickpeas and keep a little of the water. Mash them in a blender or other food processor and add the sesame pulp.

3. Add half the lemon juice and taste. Season with salt, add the garlic and beat the mixture until smooth. Add lemon juice and salt to your liking. If the humus is a bit thick, you can thin it out with some of the water you have kept.

*Sauté the pinecones with a bit of butter until they turn golden and garnish the humus with them.Pour the melted butter on top, add a little olive oil and sprinkle with paprika.
*Sauté the sausage, cut it into thin slices and serve it with the humus.
