3 cups cooked chickpeas

1 Knorr seasoning cube

4-5 cloves roasted garlic

Juice of two limes

¾ teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon grounded black pepper

1/2 cup tahini

½ cup to 3/4 cup iced/cold water

2 tablespoons olive oil

Additional chickpeas

Olive oil

Paprika powder to garnish

Falafel/rotti to dip


1. In a food processor, add the chickpeas, Knorr seasoning cube, garlic, lime juice, sea salt and black pepper. Blend on low for about 15 seconds until the chickpeas and other ingredients are finely chopped.

2. Turn the food processor on to low blend. Through the chute in the top of the food processor, slowly drizzle in the tahini bit by bit until everything is poured in.

3. Next, slowly drizzle in the olive oil. Pause, scrape the sides, and turn back on.

4. Slowly drizzle in the ice-cold water. The texture should begin to change. Leave the food processor on for 3 to 5 minutes, pause twice in between to scrape down the sides. Allow the hummus to blend completely until the hummus begins to turn light and fluffy, and fully incorporated.

5. Once blended, taste and add more of any ingredient as preferred such as more salt/tahini/lime juice.

6. Scrape the contents from the food processor into a bowl if serving immediately and using the back of your spoon, swoop into swirl shapes. Drizzle more olive oil on top with favourite toppings such as smoked paprika.

7. Enjoy with falafel, rotti, veggies and pita chips, or in sandwiches, wraps or on pasta.
