  • In a small, non-metallic bowl, toss the red onion with some lemon juice. Set aside.

Spread into a shallow serving bowl, then scatter over the remaining chickpeas, sundried tomatoes, pumpkin seeds and the crumbled Greek salad cheese. Top with the onions, drizzle over rapeseed oil and garnish with chopped parsley.

  • Heat a large griddle pan on high. Toss the spring onions, the carrots, radishes, and asparagus tips together with rapeseed oil and griddle for 1-2 mins on each side until charred but still crunchy. Transfer to a plate.

  • Griddle pitta breads for 1 min each side and cut into triangles. Serve immediately with the jewelled houmous and griddled crudités.
