Salad: 

  • 800g-1kg carrots, washed

  • 1 can (400g) chickpeas, rinsed and drained 
  • Glug olive oil 
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) honey (optional) 
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) lemon juice 
  • 1 tsp (5ml) cumin seeds 
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme  
  • Salt and milled pepper 
  • 1 packet (100g) crimson leaf salad 
  • ½ packet (50g) raw almonds, roughly chopped and toasted 

 

Hummus: 

  • 1 can (400g) chickpeas 
  • ½ tsp (3ml) ground cumin 
  • 2-3 Tbsp (30-45ml) full cream yoghurt or double-cream plain yoghurt 
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) olive oil 
  • Salt and milled pepper 
  • Squeeze lemon juice 

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. 
  2. Halve or quarter large carrots, depending on their size. 
  3. Place carrots, baby carrots (if using) and chickpeas on a baking tray. 
  4. Drizzle with olive oil, honey and lemon juice, sprinkle with cumin seeds and thyme, season and toss to coat. 
  5. Roast for 20-25 minutes, until chickpeas are crispy and carrots start to caramelise. 
  6. Set aside to cool.  
  7. Blitz hummus ingredients using a stick blender or food processor, adding enough yoghurt to create a spreadable mixture. 
  8. Spread hummus on a platter and top with roasted carrots. (You can also dollop hummus on afterwards if you prefer.) 
  9. Top with crimson leaf salad and almonds just before serving.
