  • 400g can chickpeas, drained
  • 80ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 fat garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 1 lemon, juiced then ½ zested
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • mixed crudités and toasted pitta bread, to serve (optional)


  1. Thoroughly rinse the chickpeas in a colander under cold running water. Tip into the large bowl of a food processor along with 60ml of the oil and blitz until almost smooth. Add the garlic, lemon and tahini along with 30ml water. Blitz again for about 5 mins, or until the hummus is smooth and silky.

  2. Add 20ml more water, a little at a time, if it looks too thick. Season and transfer to a bowl. Swirl the top of the hummus with the back of a dessert spoon and drizzle over the remaining oil. Serve with crunchy crudités and toasted pitta bread, if you like.
