Garlic hummus




  • 2 x 400g tins chickpeas, drained and liquid reserved
  • Zest and juice of 1 large lemon
  • 3 large cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • Small handful of Italian flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 Tbsp tahini paste
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¾ cup drained chickpea liquid


1. Place all the ingredients, except the olive oil and chickpea liquid, into a food processor and process until smooth.

2. Add the oil and chickpea liquid and process for 2 minutes until nice and smooth.

3. Season to taste.

4. Add more oil or drained chickpea liquid until you achieve your desired consistency.

5. To serve: Place the hummus on a large plate and use a spoon to make some swirls through it. Drizzle over some olive oil and jazz it up with some lemon zest, finely chopped parsley or a dusting of paprika. You could also add a sprinkling of dukkah over the top.
