  1. Step 1

    Blend the cooked chickpeas in a blender until you have a coarse paste
  2. Step 2

    Add the garlic, lemon juice, tahini, and some salt. Purée this until smooth, then slowly add the iced water until you reach your desired consistency. The hummus may need a little more seasoning at this point so taste and adjust if necessary
  3. Step 3

    Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a frying pan and fry the eggs for a couple of minutes, or until cooked to your liking
  4. Step 4

    Once cooked, remove using a slotted spatula and briefly fry the herbs, standing back as they spit, then draining them on kitchen paper. They will only take 10 seconds or so to crisp up
  5. Step 5

    To serve, spread the hummus onto plates, top each with a fried egg and serve with the crispy herbs and pickles
