Adding spicy red pepper paste is a great way to liven up hummus. For the very best result, try to achieve as smooth a puree as you can. It’s worth getting the blades of your food processor sharpened for this alone!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
400g tinned chickpeas, well rinsed and drained
30g tahini, well stirred
30g Turkish red pepper paste
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
30ml olive oil
2 ice cubes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1-1 1/2 lemons, juiced

Method

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the chickpeas, tahini, red pepper paste and cumin. Whiz to as smooth a puree as you can. Dribble in the oil very slowly, until all is incorporated. Add the ice cubes and continue blending until they have melted. Add the salt, pepper and lemon juice, then taste, and adjust the balance of flavours. Add a little more red pepper paste, lemon juice or seasonings, as necessary.

Note:

  • Use good-quality Turkish red pepper paste, which is available from specialist food stores, or make your own using the included recipe.
