  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 100 ml water


To roast the cauliflower

  • Cut cauliflower up into steaks.
  • Add to a large roasting pan with the olive oil and salt. Roast for 20 minutes, then turn. Continue to roast for a further 20 minutes or until the veg is cooked and golden brown. Remove from the oven to cool.

To make the baba ganoush

  • Preheat your oven to 180c
  • Add the aubergines to a roasting tin, then roast for 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove and allow to cool.
  • Slice through the skin and scope out the skin.
  • Add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender and blitz to a smooth paste.
  • You can drizzle more extra virgin olive oil to serve.

To make the chickpeas

  • Add all the ingredients to a small saucepan–stir to combine and heat through.

To make the dukkah

  • Put the nuts, cumin seeds, coriander seeds and sesame seeds on to a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Dry toast for 12 minutes on gas Mark 4/180C. Allow to cool.
  • Add thyme leaves, chilli & salt to a mini chopper and pulse in 1 second bursts.
  • Check after each pulse as you don’t want it too finely chopped.

To make the flatbreads

  • Add the gram flour and seasoning to a large bowl. Stir to combine. Add in the water, olive oil and vinegar. Mix to a smooth batter. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Add a little oil to the base of a non-stick small frying pan. Add 1/4 cup of the batter to the pan and swirl around the bottom so you get an even crepe.
  • Cook on a medium heat for approximately 2 minutes until there are bubbles in the crepe and you can lift over to flip easily.
  • Flip and cook on the other side for 30 seconds to a minute.
  • Remove from the pan and place on and cover with a clean cloth to keep warm.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining batter.

To serve

  • Load your plate with baba ganoush, cauliflower steaks, smoky chickpeas and dukkah.
