Slice the bread (if using unsliced bread) and spread margarine on one side of each slice.

Spread half the houmous on to one of the slices of bread.

Drizzle the chilli sauce on top of the houmous and arrange cucumber or tomato on top.

Sprinkle chopped coriander on top, along with capers and black pepper.
