Harissa chickpeas with sticky leeks and fluffy harissa hummus with za'atar

You’ve probably seen that I’m a huge fan of a warm dish served on a bed of creamy hummus or mash and this is one of the best.

I’ve added extra harissa and smoked paprika to the hummus to add extra spice and to intensify the flavour…sprinkle generous amounts on Za’atar over the hummus at the end. Amazing.

This dish would be perfect for sharing at a festive party and with chunks for fresh bread.

Enjoy, love, Niki xxx
