Tom Sarafian's hummus has a cult following and we've been lucky enough to get our hands on one of his favourite ways to use it! He's created a flavour-packed dish using just a few ingredients, highlighting our Rump Steak. Cashews are caramelised in butter, aleppo pepper and smoked paprika and poured generously over the top of the blushing pink rump.
In celebration of launching the delicious dips of Tom Sarafian, we've asked him to share some of his favourite recipes for cooking a summer barby! Today, he's shared his recipe for Charcoal chicken, which is marinated in saffron, cinnamon, ginger and black pepper.
This recipe is so simple, quick and healthy. It is comprised of ingredients from the “Blue Zones” being Sardinia and Ikaria where people live the longest! This is partly because of the polyphenol anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory foods they eat.
