Flat breads and humous, my favourite snack
This is a new easy recipe that I love if I'm out of bread and a fancy a quick snack.
I always try and keep a few tins of chickpeas in the cupboard, and tahini, so I can quickly whip up some hummus for a quick healthy snack.
The flatbreads are great as the perfect dipping tool.
300g Plain flour 40g butter 185ml milk (or soya) 1/2 tbsp
1 tin of chickpeas drained 2 tablespoons of tahini paste 1 tsp cumin 2 tbs of olive olive 1 clove of garlic chrushed small squeeze of lemon little water to blend until smooth
First let's get the bread ready, as it needs to rest for about 30 minutes. Put the butter and the milk in a small saucepan, and heat gently until the butter is melted, then add that to a big bowl with the flour. Gently mix together and knead into a ball, if it's a bit sticky then just add some more flour. Then form into a ball, and wrap in cling film and leave in a warm room for half an hour.
The hummus is so easy, add the chickpeas, along with all the other ingredients then blend until really smooth. add some paprika on the top and its ready to serve.
Back to the bread
Split the dough into 6 small balls and put each ball on a floured surface, and roll each ball into a circle.
Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat, with a tiny drizzle of olive oil. Place each circle in the frying pan for about a minute each side, watching it so as not to burn, then leave aside ready to serve with the hummus.
