This recipe has been kindly contributed by our Cheeky customer and brilliant food blogger Paul Conboy. With just a handful of ingredients, he brings together a foolproof hummus recipe that can be prepared easily and quickly in under 15 minutes. Trust us, once you’ve tried this hummus recipe, shop bought hummus just won’t do it anymore!
- 1 200g can of chickpeas
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon of tahini paste
- Half a squeeze of fresh lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil (extra virgin if you like)
- Sourdough (or any crusty bread) cut into slices and toasted
- Small handful of chopped chives
- Small handful of pomegranate seeds
- 1 tsp of Hot Chilli Hot sprinkle
- A generous pinch of sea salt and ground pepper to season
- A drizzle of extra virgin olive to garnish
- Firstly, crack on with the hummus by opening the can and draining the chickpeas. Tip into a food processor along with the lemon juice, garlic cloves, tahini and seasoning. Blitz until smooth all the time slowly adding the olive oil. You need a smooth hummus which is to your consistency. If things seem dry, try adding a little water (or more oil) until you get the consistency you require.
- Take the toasted sourdough and spread the delicious hummus on top. Sprinkle with the pomegranate seeds followed by the chives and Hot Chilli Hot Sprinkle
- Finally, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and enjoy.
