  • Put the chickpeas, tahini, garlic cloves, and cumin seeds in a food blender and pulse for a couple of seconds (I like my hummus to be a bit rustic with a few of the chickpeas still whole, so I don’t tend to blend too much)
  • Add in the olive oil and pulse for a few more seconds
  • Season with salt and lemon juice to taste
  • Serve and add a few whole chickpeas and a little sprinkle of paprika on top
