Even if you don’t like chickpeas you will love this dip. Everyone loves this dip. My brother and I have been known to demolish the whole batch between us in a very short space of time. Actually, if you make this, please make a double batch – you’ll need it. Pomegranate molasses may seem like a gourmet ingredient if you’ve never heard of it before but you can now find it in most supermarkets. If you really can’t get a hold of some, replace it with a balsamic glaze (either bought or made by slowly reducing balsamic vinegar and a little sugar in a saucepan over a low heat until thick) or balsamic vinegar mixed with 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar. The tasty pitta chips are perfect for serving with this dip.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
400g canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses, plus more to serve
1/2 teaspoon flaky salt
a generous pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 jalapenos, de-seeded and finely chopped
1 small red onion, peeled and finely chopped
3 tablespoons fresh coriander, roughly chopped
3 tablespoons fresh mint, roughly chopped
100g feta, crumbled
a handful pomegranate seeds

Method

  1. Place the chickpeas, oil, pomegranate molasses, salt and pepper in a blender and pulse briefly until combined but still slightly chunky (alternatively, place them in a large bowl and mash using a potato masher or fork).
  2. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the rest of the ingredients, reserving a little feta and some of the pomegranate seeds. Drizzle with extra pomegranate molasses and serve with the reserved pomegranate seeds and feta scattered on top.
