Fatteh; a Garlicy Yogurt, Chickpea, and Pita Chip Breakfast

 

DifficultyBeginner

Are you one of those people who can’t face a sweet breakfast? Us too! In Lebanon, many breakfasts are savoury, and are often created with leftovers from the night before (we FEAST).

An absolute favourite breakfast is Fatteh (“crumbs”), made from leftover pita bread, yogurt, and, chickpeas. It’s really simple to make and so good that you’ll want to eat it for every meal.

We also like things to be simple, so we use our very own pita chips.

 1 cup plain yogurt
 3 garlic cloves, minced
 1 tbsp Alamir Bakery Tahini
 1 can of chickpeas
 1 handful of coriander leaves
