Diana's Hummus Is the Greatest Recipe of All Time | Bon Appétit

A firm favorite in our house- super versatile and can be added to lunches, an accompaniment to an easy platter or an appetizers. What’s not to like about this super chick pea dish..

In this recipe- I add Roasted Garlic- fresh from the oven for that burst of flavour and added interest.

Fresh Smoked Garlic Hummus

1 bulb smoked garlic ( oven bake mark 6 for 20 mins )

1 tin chickpeas or 200gm of Fresh Chick peas cooked slowly in a slow cooker – the latter is how I do mine.

Juice of 1 lemon

1.5 tbsp Fresh Tahini

30 ml Cold pressed Organic extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp Smoked paprika

Rock salt ( tiny pinch) or 1/2 tsp of bouillon

Black pepper – to your preferred taste

Optional – sesame oil


Place all but a tablespoon of chickpeas of the ingredients – add to a hand food processor; blitz for 3 minutes or until you reach the consistency you want.

Take out and place ina glass dish – add the whole chick peas to the top

Dress with a sprinkle of smoked paprika and if a few chilli flakes – some cold pressed oil oil

Chill in the fridge – They are ready to serve.
