Ingredients

Wholemeal Tortilla Wrap(s)

4 medium

Sesame Seeds

3 tablespoons

Egg white(s), raw

1 individual

Garlic

1 clove(s)

Lemon Juice, Fresh

2 tablespoons

Tahini paste (Sesame paste)

2 tablespoons

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1½ tablespoons

Pumpkin Puree

225 g

Chickpeas, cooked

1 can(s), large, drained, drained and rinsed

Ground Cumin

¼ teaspoons, level

Ground Coriander

¼ teaspoon, level

Turmeric

¼ teaspoons

Ground Cinnamon

¼ teaspoons, level

Cloves, Whole or Ground

teaspoons, level

Vegetable Crudités

4 handful serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas mark 5. Using 5cm-wide bat-shaped cookie cutters, stamp out shapes from the wraps. Line a baking tray with parchment pape, then distribute the bats on the tray. Lightly coat all the bats with the egg white, and then sprinkle them generously with sesame seeds. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until crisp. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse the garlic, lemon juice, tahini, 1 tbsp olive oil, and salt to create a paste. Add the pumpkin puree, chickpeas, cumin, turmeric, coriander, cinnamon, and cloves, and process the houmous until smooth, making sure to scrape down the sides as needed. Drizzle in some water if needed to create a smooth consistency. Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle with the remaining olive oil.

Notes

We chose to serve it with vegetables in the classic autumnal colors of orange, purple, and green. They look spectacular with the black sesame seed topped bat crackers and orange hummus, but feel free to swap in any veggies you like.
