To prepare the chickpeas: heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, add ½ of one finely chopped onion to a pan and cook until translucent. Add chickpeas, ½ a teaspoon of cumin and ½ a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Blend the soup with a stick blender until smooth. Taste and adjust the spices if needed, adding more salt or spices to taste.
