  • 1 cup Chickpeas cooked (See Note 1)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Sesame Seeds Nylon, See Note 2
  • 1/4 cup Tomatoes Sundried
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil Extra Virgin
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • Salt to taste
  • Olive oil and chopped sundried tomatoes for topping


  • For a super creamy hummus, remove the skin on the chickpeas. This is optional and doesn't affect the taste, but definitely gives you a better texture.
  • To make sundried tomato hummus, add chickpeas, sesame seeds, sundried tomatoes, water, garlic and salt to a blender. Blend till smooth. Add a little more water if required.
  • Add olive oil and give it another whizz, just enough to mix it in. Over blending extra virgin olive oil can lead to a bitter after taste.
  • Top with chopped sundried tomatoes and olive oil and serve alongside lavash, cucumbers, carrots or celery.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.


To cook dried chickpeas, soak them overnight in water and pressure cook or boil till chickpeas can be mashed easily between two fingers. De-skin and use.
Nylon Til or Sesame Seeds are polished seeds and nearly white in colour. They are the best variety to use in this hummus.
