Ingredients

  • 250g cooked chickpeas (or a 400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed)
  • 4 tbsp tahini paste 
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • a tiny dab of chipotle chilli paste (or a pinch of chipotle chilli powder)
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp finely grated fresh horseradish
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 5 tbsp ice-cold water
  • A good drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp za’atar (Middle Eastern spice mix, from large supermarkets)
  • A few toasted pine nuts

Method

  1. Put the chickpeas, tahini paste, crushed garlic cloves, chipotle chilli paste (or powder), lemon juice, finely grated fresh horseradish and fine sea salt in a food processor, then whizz to a smooth paste. 
  2. With the machine still running, slowly drizzle in the ice-cold water, then 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil and blend until extra smooth. Scoop the houmous into a bowl, swirl the top with a fork, drizzle with more olive oil, then sprinkle with the za’atar and a few toasted pine nuts. Serve with toasted pitta bread and crudités.
