Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 x 400g can chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • tsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp Jazz spiced aubergine chutney



  • Drain the chickpeas, reserving the liquid from the can
  • Put the chickpeas into a food processor along with the olive oil, tahini, tomato puree, lemon juice, aubergine chutney and the seasoning.
  • Pop on the lid and blitz until the ingredients are blended to a consistency you are happy with, adding a little of the reserved liquid to loosen the mixture if necessary.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.

Serving Suggestions

  • Upgrade the appearance of this aubergine hummus by drizzling with olive oil and topping with a few seeds, olives and chilli flakes. Alternatively use it in wraps and sandwiches.


Expert Tips
• Pause the food processor midway through blending and scrape down the side before resuming. This ensures an even texture through the batch of hummus.
• Don’t feel obliged to add in the reserved liquid. Only do so if you feel that your hummus needs thinning out a little. It’s not always necessary to do this.
• Vary how long the hummus is processed for – this dip is great either served smooth or left chunkier.
• Try our Dreams garlic and onion chutney with wasabi in place of Jazz chutney. The wasabi adds dramatic punch to the recipe.
• Alternatively swap the Jazz chutney for our Bombay spiced tomato chutney for an aromatic tomato version.
• Once the hummus is made store it in the fridge for up to 3 days – press a layer of food wrap directly onto the surface of the hummus to stop it from drying out.
