In a food processor, whizz together all the ingredients for the hummus, adding about 50ml water to loosen the mixture to your desired consistency. Season, then chill for up to 24 hrs.
- STEP 2
In the small bowl of a food processor or with a stick blender, whizz together all the ingredients for the herby oil. This can also be chilled for up to 24 hrs.
- STEP 3
Just before you want to serve, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 to make the tortilla chips. Mix together the oil, cumin and sumac, brush over one side of each tortilla and season. Cut each one into 8 triangles and arrange in a single layer on a baking tray (you may need to use 2 trays, or cook them in batches). Bake in the oven for 5-8 mins until crisp and lightly golden.

Spread the hummus over a large serving plate, drizzle with the herby oil and scatter over the pomegranate seeds, pine nuts and feta. Serve with the homemade tortilla chips.
