Greek dish pita roasted chicken fried cauliflower and peanut coriander seed humus

Ingrid Beens-Goutier is happy to explain how to make her own recipes! Ingrid loves to cook and you will notice that immediately if you take a look at her Instagram account: wat_kookt_ingrid_vandaag .

With her years of experience she knows how to inspire many people every day with her beautiful and above all tasty recipes!

Ingrid explains: You all know the average Greek dishes that we eat here in the Netherlands. Especially large dishes with a lot of meat, try this recipe, completely different from the 'Dutch' Greek, namely much healthier and above all: much tastier.

Make your own pitas yourself, it's really not difficult and once you've made them yourself… then you really don't need them from the Super anymore.

You eat them whole according to the recipe below, but they are also delicious in pieces to dip them in a delicious dip, especially for you I added a healthy dip as a bonus.
