  • 3 1/2 Cups Chickpeas , divided (two 15.5 ounce cans) & rinsed
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Smoked Salt , divided
  • 2 Teaspoons Smoked Paprika , divided
  • 4 Teaspoons Olive Oil , divided
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Pepper , divided
  • 1/3 Cup Tahini
  • 3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Garlic , fresh & finely minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Parsley , fresh & roughly chopped


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place 1/2 cup of chickpeas in a small bowl, and add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon paprika, and 1 teaspoon olive oil. Toss well, place on a sheet pan, and bake for 10 minutes. Toss halfway through, at the 5 minute mark.
  • While the chickpeas are baking, place the remaining chickpeas in a food processor with 1 teaspoon salt, pepper, 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika, tanini, lemon juice, and garlic. Process continuously until you have a smooth paste, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. Additionally, if the mixture is too thick, add water 1 Tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Taste, and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  • Remove chickpeas from the oven, and allow to cool slightly. Place hummus in a serving dish, top with roasted chickpeas, and 3 teaspoons good olive oil. Sprinkle with fresh parsley, and serve with raw vegetables and/or pita bread.
