Mise en place


  1. Drain the soaking water from the chickpeas, rinse and drain again.
  2. Place the chickpeas in the internal steaming basket and the tap water and ½ teaspoons bicarbonate of soda in the bowl 50 minutes / 100°C / Speed 1.
  3. The skins should be loosening and the chickpeas soft - if not, cook for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Drain (reserving some of the liquid) and leave the chickpeas to cool.
  5. Remove the skins if a very smooth hummus is desired.
  6. To the bowl (no need to wash) mix the tahini, garlic and lemon juice with a handful of the chickpeas 30 seconds / Speeds 5-7-9.
  7. Scrape down the inside of the bowl.
  8. Add the remaining chickpeas, the chickpea water and the oil 30 seconds / Speeds 5-7-9.
  9. Add the coriander leaves 30 seconds / Speeds 6-8-10 or until you have the desired fineness of coriander.
  10. Serve in dishes drizzled with the extra oil and sprinkled with the paprika.

Serving suggestions

Serve with pieces of vegetables and flat breads suitable cut for dunking


If you want a more textured hummus, reduce the blending times and speeds accordingly.

Tinned or jarred chickpeas can be used (about 275g) but because they haven't been soaked or cooked with bicarbonate of soda, a very smooth result will be more difficult to achieve.
