Ingredients
  • For the Carrot Slaw
  • ¼ red onion, peeled
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 carrots, trimmed, tops removed and peeled
  • 1 handful (25 g/¾ oz) fresh coriander
  • (cilantro) and mint, leaves picked
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • For Heavenly Hummus
  • 200 g (7 oz/1 cup) dried chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 120 ml (4 fl oz/½ cup) hulled tahini
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • sea salt, to taste
Directions
  1. To prepare the slaw, thinly slice the onion, transfer to a medium-sized mixing bowl, massage with the lemon juice and oil and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, grate the carrots and roughly chop the herbs then transfer to the bowl of onion, along with the raisins. Season to taste with salt and pepper and mix until combined.

  3. To make the hummus, drain and rinse 2 x 400 g (14 oz) tins chickpeas (garbanzo beans). Place them with ½ cup of hot water and garlic, tahini, lemon juice, oil and cumin, in a food processor or blender, season to taste with salt and blend until completely smooth.

  4. To assemble, spread 8 flatbread slices with some hummus, arrange slaw, cucumber or radish and lettuce on top of 4 of them and cover with the remaining 4 flatbreads. Wrap some parchment paper around the sandwiches to keep the filling in place.
