From Jamie Oliver's cookbook, The Nakes Chef Takes Off. Jamie writes "This is a bastardized hummus recipe, but no less tasty. I love it best smeared over thin pizza crusts cooked on a hot griddle until charred, but tortillas are always a quick option."

  1. This is so simple to make. Really it's all about personal taste - the way I look at it is that chickpeas need a good kick up the backside to really get their flavors happening. So by mashing them up and adding a good pinch of cumin for a bit of spice, a little dried chilli for a touch of heat, garlic for a bit of ooorrrggghh, a good squeezing of lemon juice to give it a twang and seasoning to taste, you pretty much hit the nail on the head. Then add extra-virgin olive oil to loosen and flavor. Love it.
