Plus, your preferred pita to serve



  1. Place the chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, sea salt into your food processor and blitz until pureed.
  2. While the blender is still running, gradually add water, 2 Tbsp at a time, until it starts to form a really creamy consistency.
  3. If you’d like your Houmous a little creamier, just add more water.


Hard-Boiled Eggs
  1. Place your eggs in a small pot and cover entirely with water, bring to a boil and keep boiling for 1 minute.
  2. Next, take them off the heat, cover the pot and let it sit for 12 minutes.
  3. Run the eggs under cold water and allow them to cool completely before peeling the shells off.
  4. Once peeled, slice two of the eggs into wedges and the other two into thick one-inch circles.


Tabouli Salad
  1. Prepare your salad vegetables and mix them together in a bowl. Then, pour lemon juice over them and season with sea salt and pepper. Stir to combine completely.


Roasted Veggies
  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC (Gas mark 6). Prepare the vegetables, place them in a bowl, add in olive oil, granulated garlic powder, sea salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
  2. Arrange the veggies on a baking tray lined with heat-proof paper. Don’t overcrowd the trays, so that the veggies can get nice and crisp.
  3. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes until they’ve browned slightly.


Steamy Beets:
  1. Prep the beets and place them in a pot. Then, add enough water, so the beets are slightly covered but not submerged.
  2. Turn the heat to medium-low and cover the pan. Allow to steam for 15 minutes, until the beets are tender.
  3. Pour apple cider vinegar over the beets and season them with sea salt and pepper.


  1. Once the hummus is done, spoon it onto a platter or large bowl.
  2. Assemble the toppings in layers, first with the roasted vegetables, then the steamy beets, the tabouli on top of that, then the eggs and finally, your additional toppings.
  3. You could place each topping in little piles, rather than mixing them together if you have picky eaters around.
  4. Serve with a warmed pita (or 3) and enjoy!
