The best hummus you’ve ever tasted!

Alana shares a unique and elevated hummus recipe, promising a superior taste compared to store-bought versions. The key twist involves boiling canned chickpeas with bicarb soda to achieve a smoother texture. Unhulled tahini paste is used for a nuttier and earthier flavour. The addition of infused garlic, lemon juice, cumin, salt, extra virgin olive oil, and a touch of icy water creates a posh hummus with depth and richness. The presentation is enhanced with crunchy carrots and a final sprinkle of sea salt.
