Hummus with quick pita bread

Hummus with quick pita bread


Knead the pita dough 

To make the pita bread, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt, then add the soft butter and water and knead into a firm dough. The dough shouldn’t be too sticky. 


Shape the bread 

Shape the dough into a roll then divide it into eight pieces. Roll out each piece, or flatten them between two small boards. Heat up 2 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan and fry the pita bread over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes until golden brown.


Blend the hummus 

Set aside four chickpeas. Put the remaining ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Garnish the hummus with some cayenne pepper, the remaining whole chickpeas and some olive oil.
