Blending the hummus
500g of cooked chickpeas

This variation on the standard hummus recipe is the best I have ever tasted, so I have added it separately so it can be easily replicated.

Mise en place

  • Soak the dried chickpeas for 24 hours in cold water, refresh a few times if you can.


  1. Drain and rinse the soaked chickpeas.
  2. Add to a large pan, cover with water - do not add any salt, otherwise the peas will not absorb the water properly. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 hour or until softened. They may take a little longer depending on size and age.
  3. Drain, rinse and allow to cool a little
  4. Add to a food processor with everything but the olive oil. Blend to a paste, then as if making mayonnaise, gradually drizzle in the olive oil with the motor running.
  5. Adjust the consistency by adding a little cold water if too thick.
