For the topping

  • STEP 3

    Whisk together the crème fraîche, tahini, lime juice and zest, and garlic in a bowl, along with 50ml water to loosen.

  • STEP 4

    To serve, top the toasted pittas with the tahini lime sauce, pile on the aubergine and chickpeas and finish with a sprinkling of coriander, the extra lime zest and lime wedges.
