Pita Bread with Chickpea Filling


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 dl milk
  • 7 dl plain white flour
  • 1/2 pack dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 400 g chickpeas
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 x lemon
  • 1 x red onion
  • 1 x tomato
  • 1/4 x cucumber
  • 100 g feta cheese
  • 1/4 pack rocket


  1. Start by making the pita breads. Melt the butter and add milk. Make sure the mixture does not exceed a temperature of 37 degrees (100F). Transfer the butter and milk mixture to a bowl. Add flour, salt and dry yeast, then combine and knead the dough for about 10 minutes. Next, let the dough rise for about 20 minutes.
  2. Make hummus by adding garlic, half of the chickpeas, cumin, salt, lemon and olive oil to a bowl. Mash with a fork, an immersion blender or a food processor.
  3. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees celsius. Divide the dough into approximately equal parts, and roll out each part into round, flat pita breads. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 5-8 minutes.
  4. Chop the red onion, tomato and cucumber, and add to a bowl along with chickpeas and feta cheese. Mix well.
  5. Now fill the pita breads with hummus, chickpea filling and rocket.
  6. If you follow the weekly menu, set aside half of the hummus, chickpea filling and pita breads. These will be used later in the weekly menu.
