Method

  • First make the hummus. Juice the lemon, reserving a little for the kale, and pour into a blender along with all the rest of the ingredients for the hummus. Blitz until smooth. If the consistency of the hummus seems too thick, simply add a few tablespoons of water and blend again.
  • Arrange the kale on a oven tray, removing and tough stems. Season with salt and pepper and place in a 200˚c oven for 10 minutes or until the kale is crisp and dry. Remove from the oven and pour into a large mixing bowl.
  • Roughly slice the black olives and remaining wild garlic and add to kale. Pour in the olive oil, any remaining lemon juice and pomegranate seeds. Mix to combine. Season to taste then tear the pita bread into small 2 cm piece and fold into the kale.
  • Serve with the hummus plated spread on individual plates and the pita mixture heaped over the top.
