Ingredients

120g Eatlean Protein Cheese Grated

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tbsp olive oil

1 cauliflower, broken into florets

400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

250g frozen peas

1 clove garlic

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp fat-free plain yoghurt

5 sprigs coriander

Pinch of cayenne pepper or chilli powder

Salt and pepper, to taste

To serve:

4 pitta breads or small Greek flatbreads

Coriander leaves, chopped, to garnish

Chilli sauce (optional)

Method

1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas mark 4.

2

In a bowl, mix  the dry spices with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the cauliflower and chickpeas and mix well to coat in the spices.

3

Spread the cauliflower and chickpeas evenly in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring once to ensure the chickpeas and cauliflower get roasted evenly.

4

While the cauliflower and chickpeas are roasting, make the puree. Add the peas to a pan of boiling water and simmer for 2 minutes. Drain the peas and put in a food processor along with the garlic, lemon juice, yoghurt and coriander. Blend well until a purée is formed.

5

Season and add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper or chilli powder as preferred.

6

To serve, warm the pittas, top with the pea purée, then add the roasted cauliflower and chickpeas before sprinkling with the cheese and garnishing with the coriander and adding a drizzle of chilli sauce, if you like.
