    Brush the steaks with olive oil. Heat a large chargrill or non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Grill the steak for 2-3 minutes on each side, for medium. Transfer the steak to a clean chopping board, cover loosely with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak, across the grain

  • 3.

    Combine the cherry tomatoes, cucumber and parsley. Fill the pita breads with some pumpkin hommous, slices of steak and tomato cucumber salad. Serve immediately


Left over pumpkin hommous will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days

It’s great to spread on sandwiches, added to purees for a smooth texture, or served as a dip with vegetable sticks for finger food
