  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 5 Minutes


  • 1 wholemeal pitta bread
  • 0.33 cucumber, quartered lengthways, deseeded and cut into sticks
  • 3 celery sticks, halved lengthways and cut into sticks
  • 4 radishes, quartered
How to Make It
  1. To make the dip, tip the beans into the bowl of a food processor. Add the garlic, lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Pulse for 20 seconds, or until a thick paste forms. Alternatively, place the ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat thoroughly with a wooden spoon to combine. Add a little water if the mixture is too stiff. Transfer to a small bowl.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium and lightly toast the pitta bread. Cut into eight strips.
  3. Place the bowl of dip in the centre of a plate, surrounded by the crudités and pitta bread strips. Serve immediately.
