Ingredients

  • 500g tub Greek natural yogurt
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve
  • Turkish flatbreads or pittas, to serve

Method

  1. Spoon the yogurt into a sieve lined with a large square of muslin. Rest over a bowl, cover with cling film and leave to drain overnight in the fridge.
  2. The next day, heat a dry frying pan over a high heat. Add the sesame seeds and shake around for a few seconds until lightly toasted. Tip into a bowl, cool, then stir in the thyme and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  3. Tip the yogurt into a bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Beat in the oil and a good pinch of salt. Spoon into a small serving bowl and swirl with the back of the spoon. Drizzle with more oil and sprinkle with the sesame mix.
  4. Lightly toast the bread (can be done on a barbecue), until lightly golden on both sides. Serve with the yogurt dip.
