I’ve been wanting to make this for a while – I finally got the chance on Sunday and i’m so glad I did!It turned out even better than expected – a fluffy dough ball wreath filled with olives and topped with sesame seeds, sea salt and good olive oil.
The balls are squidgy on the inside and i recommend eating them warm straight out of the oven dipped in the caramelised onion hummus and a spoon of crunchy festive slaw.
I think the gorgeous caramelised onion hummus is a brilliant dip for the festive period – certainly a bit special. The slow cooking of the onions is well worth it for their beautiful deep and sweet flavour.And my slaw has a festive touch with the lightly toasted pecans and little bursts of sweetness from the cranberries.
Tips and swaps;
- Swap the pecans for toasted seeds for a nut free version
- You can omit the olives if you prefer or add other flavours such as; sun dried tomatoes or herbs.
- Butter beans work well as an alternative to chickpeas
- Swap the thyme for rosemary
I hope you love this one!
