This Middle Eastern inspired “Fatteh Hoummus/ Hummus” is a wonderful savoury bread pudding like dish is a great idea on a hot day when it’s too hot to stand close to an oven or, hob. I used fluffy Turkish bread discs, which cut up to make about 2 cups of Turkish bread cubes. Baking these pieces in the Airfryer means no preheating the oven or long prep. While the bread pieces were baking to perfect crisp squares the dressing came along quickly. Anyone who likes Hoummus will certainly love this. I have a recipe here and here for the Hoummus/ Hummus, and here for an Indian inspired savoury bread pudding.
Vegan, Nut Free and soy free.
Substitute the Turkish bread for Gluten free bread for a gluten free version.
- 2 cups Turkish Wholemeal Bread Chopped into squares
- 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
- 2 cups Boiled / Canned Chickpeas, drained
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 2 tablespoons Lime Juice
- 1 teaspoon Cumin Seeds, lightly roasted and crushed
- 2 cups Coconut Yogurt, whisked
- Salt, to taste
- 1/2 - 3/4 cup Water optional
- 1 teaspoon Chilli Flakes, optional
Bake the bread squares in the Airfryer for 15 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
In a blender jar, add the chickpeas, garlic, lime juice, salt and yogurt. Add water as needed.
Blend until smooth and fluffy.
In a flat dish lay the baked bread squares at the bottom.
Pour some of the Chickpeas & Coconut yogurt mixture over the pieces.
Add another layer of toasted bread squares over this and pour the remaining mixture.
Sprinkle the roasted and lightly crushed cumin seeds and drizzle the olive oil along with some sea salt and chilli flakes (if using) on top.
Tastes best after sitting for a bit when the flavours mix in.
Happy cooking 😊
