Ingredients

For the houmous
  • 1 x 400g tin chickpeas
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 heaped tbsp tahini
  • juice of 1 lemon
For the meat
  • 1 lamb neck fillet, around 200g, cut into small pieces
To serve
  • 25g pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pack flatbreads, to serve

Step by step

Get ahead
The houmous will keep for 3 days in the fridge. Bring to room temperature; add the topping before serving.
  1. Drain the chickpeas, saving the water; reserve a few whole chickpeas. Blend the rest really well in a food processor with all the other houmous ingredients. If it looks a bit dry, gradually add some of the water from the tin.
  2. Brown the meat in a frying pan on a high heat for 4 minutes; season.
  3. Spread the houmous over the base of a shallow bowl. Scatter the meat, pine nuts, reserved chickpeas and parsley on top, and add a drizzle of olive oil. Serve with flatbreads.
