6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Onion, parsley and sumac salad

30g fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, roughly chopped

Method

  1. Put the chickpeas in a bowl with the oregano, mint, paprika, cumin, allspice and lemon juice. Season generously with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and mix well.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and sauté the chickpeas for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and mash everything to a rough consistency.
  3. Combine all the ingredients for the onion, parsley and sumac salad in a bowl and season with sea salt.
  4. Combine all the ingredients for the yoghurt and red pepper sauce in a small bowl.
  5. To serve, place a flatbread on a wooden board. Spoon some of the chickpea mixture along the centre, add some of the salad and squash 4 grilled tomato halves on top. Spoon some of the sauce over the filling and drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Roll the mixture up tightly and keep warm while you repeat the process with the remaining wraps. Serve immediately.
