  • About

A purée of chick-peas fits the bill on nights when I come home late, am facing an evening of work, and need to eat something quickly that is light enough so I don’t fall asleep at my desk but nutritious enough to sustain me.

This aromatic and spunky mash of chickpeas mixed with watercress and coriander is not unlike a tangy humus. Stuff the mix into whole-wheat pita bread, serve with sliced red peppers, and dinner’s done.
