Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  2. Place the anchovies, olive oil, garlic, parsley, lemon zest and juice into a food processor and blend until smooth.

  3. Roll out the pastry to a 5mm/ ¼in thickness. Spread over the anchovy mixture, leaving a 2.5cm/1in gap around the edge.

  4. Roll the two longest sides tightly towards each other until they meet in the middle. Wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.

  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, or until risen and golden-brown.

  7. Meanwhile, for the beetroot hummus, place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

  8. Remove the palmiers from the oven and serve with the hummus.
