Hummus is always a winner, and we got local musician J’Something to let us in on his classic chickpea hummus recipe. This one is perfect to enjoy with these cumin flatbreads with garlic and chilli!
SERVES 8 // COOKING TIME 20 min
2 × 400 g tin chickpeas (reserve ¼ cup to garnish)
¼ cup tahini
Handful parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and roasted
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 tsp ground cumin
