I’ve been wanting to make this for a while–I finally got the chance on Sunday and I’m so glad I did!It turned out even better than expected–a fluffy dough ball wreath filled with olives and topped with sesame seeds, sea salt and good olive oil.

The balls are squidgy on the inside and I recommend eating them warm straight out of the oven dipped in the caramelised onion hummus and a spoon of crunchy festive slaw.

I think the gorgeous caramelised onion hummus is a brilliant dip for the festive period–certainly special. The slow cooking of the onions is well worth it for their beautiful deep and sweet flavour.And my slaw has a festive touch with the lightly toasted pecans and little bursts of sweetness from the cranberries.

Tips and swaps;

Swap the pecans for toasted seeds for a nut free version.
You can omit the olives if you prefer or add other flavours such as; sun-dried tomatoes or herbs.
Butter beans work well as an alternative to chickpeas.
Swap the thyme for rosemary.

I hope you love this one!
