1 (100 g) garlic bulb
1 x 380 g tin artichoke hearts, drained
1 x 410 g tin butter beans, drained
¼ C (60 ml / 70g) tahini paste
1 Tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
1 Tbsp (15 ml) basil, chopped
2 tsp (10 ml) lemon juice
salt and pepper
10 (400 g) mini pitas
salt and pepper
312 g Quorn Soy-free, Meat-free Chicken style fillets, cooked
handful micro basil leaves
Preheat the oven to 200 °C. Place the garlic bulb on a piece of foil, drizzle with sunflower oil and close up the foil to encase the bulb. Bake for 25-30 minutes until tender.
Once the garlic has cooled, cut the bulb open and squeeze out the tender garlic flesh. Add it to a food processor along with the artichoke hearts, butter beans, tahini, olive oil, basil and lemon juice. Purée until smooth and season to taste.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Slice the pitas open (split) and cut each round into quarters. Toss the pitas in the olive oil and season lightly. Arrange the pieces on the lined tray and bake at 200 °C until golden and crisp, about 8-10 minutes. Drain on kitchen paper.
Thinly slice the Quorn chicken-style fillets. Spoon the hummus into one large serving bowl or two smaller serving dishes. Arrange the fillet slices over the hummus and scatter the pine nuts on top. Garnish with micro basil leaves. Serve the dip with the pita chips.
TIP: Some supermarkets stock ready to eat marinated artichoke hearts in their convenience or deli sections, which can be substituted for the tinned ones.
