Ingredients

  • 8 Echalion Shallots, peeled and quartered lengthways
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp sumac, plus extra to serve
  • ½ lemon, juice
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 50g sultanas, roughly chopped
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • ½ x 25g pack mint, leaves only, torn
  • 200g No.1 Natural Strained Greek Yogurt

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Place the shallots in a large roasting tin and add the oil, sumac, lemon juice and garlic. Season generously and toss together. Bake for 35 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until the shallots are soft and beginning to char.

  3. Scatter with the sultana, chilli and mint mix and serve with the flatbreads.

Cook’s tip

Add seasoned chicken thighs to the shallots to make this an easy family traybake for 4. Increase the cooking time accordingly (check the pack for guidance) until the chicken is cooked through, there is no pink meat and the juices run clear.
