Servings 4


  • 400 g dried chickpeas
  • 250 g tahini
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 100 ml lemon juice
  • ¾ tsp each salt and cumin
  • 3 cloves garlic


  • Soak chickpeas in a plenty of water for about 12 hours or overnight.
  •  I cook my chickpeas in pressure pot but if you don’t have one use normal and add baking powder to boiling chickpeas. Boil for about 45 minutes until chickpeas are very soft and mushy.
  • Cool down the chickpeas and add to a food processor.
  • Add the rest ingredients and blend until very smooth.
  • Add splash of cold water if to thick.
  •  I love topping my hummus with za’atar and chili flakes and of course lots of olive oil! Zaatar and hummus is the best combination ever!
