Method

  1. Put the chickpeas, tahini and garlic cloves in a food processor and whizz until smooth. Add the lemon juice, olive oil, just-boiled water and Marmite. Whizz again until very smooth. Serve with sticks of carrot, cucumber and pepper and Sesame flatbreads.
  2. For the sesame flatbreads, heat grill to high and dust a non-stick baking sheet with a little flour. Mix the self-raising flour, sesame seeds, a pinch of salt and a grind of black pepper in a large bowl. Stir in the natural yogurt and milk or water, then mix well to form a soft dough.
  3. Divide the dough into 4 and press each piece into an oval approx 5mm thick. Place on the sheet and grill for 3 mins on each side until puffed and golden. Brush with a little olive oil before serving, if you like.

I lovvvvvvvvvve houmus and could eat it every day, not this one though. I had to add about 4tbsp of water just to get a decent paste. Giving this to kids who don't like garlic would be a mistake, 2 raw cloves is not subtle for 1 tin of chickpeas.

how much natural yoghurt/milk/water?
