Ingredients

  • 700g chickpeas, drained
  • 135ml extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • lemons, juiced

For the toppings

  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp sumac
  • ½ small pack parsley, roughly chopped
  • 40g pomegranate seeds
  • crudités and warm pittas, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Blitz ¾ of the chickpeas and 120ml of the oil with the rest of the hummus ingredients and a good amount of seasoning in a food processor. Add a little water if it is too thick. Spoon the hummus into a serving bowl or spread it onto a plate. Can be made up to two days in advance and kept in the fridge.

  • STEP 2

    Dry the rest of the chickpeas on kitchen paper as much as possible. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chickpeas and a large pinch of salt, and fry until golden, around 4 mins. Drain on kitchen paper.

  • STEP 3

    Drizzle some oil over the hummus, then sprinkle with the spices, parsley and pomegranate seeds. Scatter the fried chickpeas on top and serve with crudités and warm pitta breads.
