J’Something’s classic chickpea hummus

Hummus is always a winner, and we got local musician J’Something to let us in on his classic chickpea hummus recipe. This one is perfect to enjoy with these cumin flatbreads with garlic and chilli!


2 × 400 g tin chickpeas (reserve ¼ cup to garnish)
¼ cup tahini
Handful parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and roasted
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 tsp ground cumin
Pinch chilli flakes
Salt and pepper
¼ cup olive oil

1. Place all of the ingredients (except oil) in a food processor and blend until crumbly.
2. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, while blending, until the mixture reaches a smooth consistency.
3. For the garnish, fry reserved chickpeas in a little oil. Season with salt, pepper and a sprinkle of cumin.
4. Garnish hummus with toasted chickpeas and an extra drizzle of oil.
