Thievery’s Burnt Butter Hummus

Makes generous bowl (you can save it in the fridge for up to a week just keep the butter and hummus separate and gently reheat the butter on the stove before serving)

1kg dry chickpeas

1500ml water

16g fine sea salt

80ml fresh lemon juice

80ml extra virgin olive oil

4g crushed garlic

120g tahini

For the burnt butter

100g butter

10g paprika

Method

Soak the chickpeas in water overnight and cook until soft and tender. This will take about two to three hours.

In the morning, strain the chickpeas and then blend until the consistency is relatively smooth. Reserve some of the liquid to add back into the mixture (about one cup will be enough).

Blend the chickpea puree with the oil, salt, lemon juice and garlic. If the mixture is too stiff, add a little of the liquid to ensure the hummus comes out with a smooth and silky consistency.

In a bowl, whisk together the tahini and any extra salt to taste.

For the burnt butter, melt the butter over a low heat until the milk solids separate. Leave it until the butter turns a golden brown (this usually happens at about 150 degrees celsius). Whisk in the paprika.

Pour the burnt butter paprika mixture over the hummus. Then get stuck in.
