Rockstar Hummus

Rockstar Hummus

I’m not the kind of person that’ll pick up a tub of hummus and a bag of pita bread from the grocery store for a snack. Either the consistency is fucked up, needs more salt, more cow bell, more tahini… ect.. I don’t know!?! I can never find one that I really like.

But what I can tell you is when you see me self checkin out (don’t even get me started on that racket) with that watery can of chick peas & that bottle of pasty sesame goodness.. it’s about to go DOWN!!!
The MVP of this show is the fried chick peas & hot paprika oil to give it that extra razzle dazzle… you’ll see! 



  • 1 Cup/ 180g Canned Chick Peas (drained)
  • 2 Garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/4 Cup/ 50g Tahini
  •  Lemon Juice 1/2  small lemon or 40g
  • 1 tsp/ 5g Salt
  • 2 Tbs/ 28g hot water
  • 1/3 Cup/60g Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp/2g Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp/2g Paprika

Fried Chick Pea Seasoning

  • 1 tsp/1g Paprika
  • 1 tsp/1g Cumin
  • 1 tsp/1g Salt

Seasoned Oil

  • 4 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 Garlic clove (minced)
  • 1 tsp/1g Paprika
  • 1 Tbs Chopped Parsley


  1.  Add Chick Peas, Garlic, and Tahini to a food processor/blender and pulse until Chick Peas are crushed up. We are doing this in batches so that all ingredients get incorporated and there are no chunks.  
  2. Add remaining ingredients to food processor and blend until smooth. may have to add another splash of oil and blendy blendy! Our Hummus mixture is done, how does it taste?
  3. Put remaining Chick Peas on paper towel and pat dry.
  4. Pour oil in a small pot and heat to 350 degrees to fry deez peas
  5. Fry peas in oil until they turn GBD (golden brown delicious) and start floating on the top.
  6. Take Peas out of oil, put in mixing bowl and sprinkle the Chick Pea Seasoning and toss to flavor 
  7. To make the Seasoned Oil add all ingredients to small sauce pan and bring up to temp. Once it starts to bubble vigorously take off heat and time to assemble!!!
  8. Drop that Hummus on a plate, sprinkle seasoned Chick Peas and gently pour hot seasoned oil on top!
  9. Heat up some pita however you like and enjoy!!!
