Method

  1. To make the pitta crisps, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Brush both sides of the pitta breads with oil, then tear into pieces. Spread on a large baking tray and sprinkle with the flaky salt. Bake for 8 mins until starting to toast. They will get crisper as they cool.
  2. To make the dip, heat the oil in a pan. Fry the courgettes and garlic with seasoning until the courgettes are tender. Set aside a couple of tablespoons of the courgettes and tip the rest into a bowl with the beans, lemon juice, yogurt and mint. Whizz until smooth with a hand blender, then spoon into a bowl or food container and top with the remaining courgettes.

Made this to take to a large family barbecue. Although it was for 4 people I trebled the recipe. It filled a large mixing bowl which was a good job as it went down a storm. Very fresh & light. The pitta crisps went really well with the dish too. I made them the night before & put them in a tin, however, when I checked on them the next day they had gone really chewy. So I piled them onto trays & put them back in the oven for about 6-7 minutes. Just what they needed & they were much better twice baked. Perfect! Definitely will be making again!

Really enjoy this. Used 'full' Greek yogurt.

Just whizzed this up for my lunch now. A bit runny but i can deal with that to have a lower fat dip, really easy too.
