Default Root with recovery

Hi all. I recently reverted back to a stock rom 757 I flashed the ftf using flash tool. However I still have twrp working (bootloader unlocked) is it possible to root using the Recovery by flashing a zip? Instead of having to install a whole new rom?

The recovery is in your kernel not in the system partition, that's why you kept recoevry
You are rooted
In order to have a superuser app to manage your root rights just flash SuperSU.zip from chainfire (Google it)
