1 tablespoon butter 

Pinch espresso powder 

Tzatziki:

1/2 cup sugar snap peas

3 tablespoons crumbled feta

Directions

  1. For the hummus: Combine the chickpeas, green peas, olive oil, tahini, lemon zest and juice, mint and some salt and pepper in a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and correct the seasoning.
  2. For the olive soil: Add the olives, breadcrumbs, oats, pistachios, butter and espresso powder to a food processor and process until finely ground. Transfer the mixture to a baking sheet and bake in a 300-degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until dried.
  3. For the tzatziki: Thinly slice the cucumber, radishes and sugar snaps and add them to a bowl. Add the yogurt, feta, dill, lemon zest and juice and some salt and pepper and mix well to combine. Taste and correct the seasoning.
  4. For the carrots: Add the tea, citrus zest, honey, coriander and some salt and pepper to a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until reduced to glaze. Meanwhile, blanch the carrots in boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain the carrots well, then add to the glaze and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. To serve, spoon hummus, tzatziki and olive soil on a plate. Arrange a few toast points on the hummus and top the soil with some carrots.
