Ingredients

For the hummus

  • 2 x 240g cans chickpeas , drained and rinsed
  • 4 tbsp tahini
  • 3 garlic cloves , crushed
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • zest and juice 1.5 lemons

For the herby oil

  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ bunch parsley , leaves picked
  • ½ bunch mint , leaves picked
  • juice 0.5 lemon
  • 1 green chilli , deseeded and diced

For the tortilla chips

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sumac
  • 4 flour tortillas

To serve

  • 100g pack pomegranate seeds
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts , toasted
  • 200g feta , crumbled

Method

  • STEP 1

    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.

  • STEP 4

    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.
