Middle Eastern Chickpea Aubergine Flatbreads

These Middle Eastern chickpea aubergine flatbreads are prefect for a healthier 'fakeaway'. They taste amazing, packed with flavour and are so easy to make! I grew up eating something called 'Lahm Bi Ajeen', which literally translates to 'meat in dough'. It consisted of a basic flatbread dough, topped with a tomato minced meat mixture.

California Walnut Za’atar Flat Breads

Tandoori Tofu Chickpea Pizza

Tandoori Tofu Chickpea Pizza I usually make pizza on a Friday or Saturday evening and I know it's only Tuesday, but I spent the whole weekend working and this evening I really feel like having pizza and a movie night with the hubby.  Today, I'm making two pizzas; one with cheese (for the hubby) and one without (for myself). I try to avoid dairy as much as I can for several reasons. The main one being it triggers my IBS flare-ups. To my husband's disappointment I usually leave out cheese when I make pizza. He LOVES his cheese and wouldn't consider a pizza "a pizza" without it, although he made an exception with my avocado pizza. I have to agree with [...]
