Squash is an "anything goes" kind of vegetable. You can throw it in a soup, fry it, roast it, put it in a bowl or a salad, or turn it into a puree. In this recipe, I have combined it with chickpeas to create a silky smooth hummus and bring a touch of autumn to the mezze table. It's accompanied by homemade pita bread with black sesame seeds.

How it's done

Pita dough

Empty the flour into a bowl and mix with all the other ingredients up to and including the yeast, pour in the water and oil, mix and knead to form a soft, smooth dough. Cover and leave to rise at room temperature for approx. 1 hr.


Place the squash on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

To bake

Approx. 20 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 200°C. Remove from the oven, leave to cool.


Combine the squash with the chickpeas and all the other ingredients up to and including the salt, puree until smooth. Plate up the hummus and drizzle with olive oil.

To shape and fry the pitas

Divide the dough into 8 portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into circles (each approx. 15 cm in diameter). Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan. Fry the pitas in batches over a medium heat for approx. 2 mins. on each side, remove from the pan, sprinkle with the sesame seeds, serve with the hummus.
