Accompaniments For Courgette And Chickpea Pie

Asked by AmyFoot. Answered on 11th October 2016

Full question

Can you give me some ideas on what to serve Courgette And Chickpea Filo Pie with? I would like various options for vegetarian dinner party. Thanks for your help!

Our answer

Nigella's Courgette And Chickpea Filo Pie (from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS) is Iranian-inspired so we would suggest maybe offering some hummus as an appetizer. Nigella has a selection of hummus recipes but you could try the Peanut Butter Hummus as it is easy to make and without difficult to find ingredients. If you wanted to avoid repeating chickpeas then try an avocado-based dip such as Soccermole. Nigella's Peppers With Feta And Almonds could be an alternative, but make sure the feta is made with vegetarian rennet or omit it altogether. All could be served with Nigellan Flatbreads or store-bought flatbreads or pita.

The pie itself already includes rice so is quite substantial and a green salad is always a good accompaniment, or the Spinach, Avocado And Pumpkin Seed Salad has a good variety of textures. For added colour try the Egyptian Tomato Salad. You could also consider making the Warm Spiced Cauliflower and Chickpea Salad with Pomegranate Seeds but without the chickpeas, as they are already included in the pie. A light dessert, such as Turkish Delight Syllabub would be an apt ending.
