Harissa Hummus with Paprika Pita Chips

For many of us summertime means that after a long day’s work there are still daylight hours in which you can hopefully sit outside and enjoy lingering sunlight.  What better way to do this than with a glass of wine in one hand and something tasty to nibble on in the other.  This super fast harissa hummus is the perfect accompaniment for that well-earned tipple.

Pita breads

Pre-heat the oven to 200C/ Gas Mark 7.
Use a kitchen scissors to cut the pita breads into dip sized chips.
