Chickpea tortillas with sweet melon and broad beans

These chickpea tortillas may be gluten-free, sugar-free and meat-free, but don’t be fooled into thinking they don’t pack all the flavour!


For the chickpea tortillas
1 cup chickpea flour
1 tsp baking powder
Salt and pepper
1 egg, whisked
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp water
½ tbsp psyllium husk
For the toppings
1 cup broad beans
¼ tsp chilli flakes
Salt and pepper
400 g sweet melon, cubed
1 disc feta, sliced

For the chickpea tortillas
1. Sift together the chickpea flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Add the egg, coconut oil, water and psyllium husk, and mix well.
2. Split the dough into 4 balls. Place each between 2 sheets of baking paper and roll out into a disc.
3. Heat a pan and dry-fry each tortilla for 1–2 minutes on each side, until slightly charred.
For the toppings
1. Lightly blanch the broad beans in boiling water, then drain. Mix with the chilli, salt and pepper. Mash gently.
2. To serve, top each tortilla with bean mash, melon and feta slices.
