Cooking time:
Kanchan's Sumac Hummus


  • 1 15 oz can cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (white sesame paste)
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for drizzling
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus a few extra pinches salt (skip for babies)
  • 5 tablespoons cold water
  • Large pinch sumac (or cumin, paprika and coriander for a Moroccan twist)
  • 1/6 tsp blue dye per serving

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Blend all the ingredients except the sumac (or cumin and paprika) until smooth, adding a splash more cold water if necessary to achieve a creamy texture.
  2. Check the salt and adjust seasoning. Sprinkle with sumac (or cumin and paprika if you prefer) and drizzle with a little olive oil. Mix in
  3. Enjoy with crackers, chopped veg, on pita bread, in a sandwich or on its own. It should keep covered in the fridge for 3-5 days.
