Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 410g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Juice of ½ large lemon
  • 2 tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste, from major supermarkets)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • Few spring onions, sliced, to garnish (optional)

For the coriander pittas

  • 50g butter
  • 1½ tsp coriander seeds, roughly crushed
  • Handful of fresh coriander, leaves roughly torn
  • 6 white pittas

Method

  1. Make the avocado houmous. Halve and stone the avocado, scoop out the flesh and put it into a food processor. Add the chickpeas, garlic, ground cumin, lemon juice, tahini and olive oil and pulse until nearly smooth. Transfer to a bowl and season to taste. Drizzle with a little oil, and top with spring onion, if using.
  2. Make the pittas. Preheat the grill to medium. Melt the butter in a small pan over a medium heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the coriander seeds and leaves. Brush over 1 side of each pitta, pop 3 on a baking sheet, butter side up, and grill for 1-2 minutes until golden. Set aside while you grill the rest. Cool slightly, then slice each pitta. Serve with the houmous.
