Roast Carrots with Populate Hummus and Green Tahini
This incredible vegetable dish is a serious showstopper. Not only does it look and taste amazing but it's packing some serious gut health benefits with a sneaky serve of our Populate Body Glue in the hummus.
Prep : 45 mins
Serves: 4-6 as a side
FOR THE ZUCCHINI HUMMUS:
600g zucchini peeled and deseeded (about 4 large)
4 tbs organic tahini
1 tbs Gevity Rx Populate Bone Broth Body Glue™
2 cloves garlic
1-2 tbs Organic EVOO
1-2 tbs lemon juice to taste
50 g preserved lemon (around 1 medium – large piece)
1 tbs ground cumin
3 tsp cumin seeds
1 teaspoon sea salt
Freshly cracked pepper
1-2 teaspoons psyllium husk
FOR THE CARROT SALAD:
600 g dutch baby carrots
1/2 tablespoon Organic EVOO
1/2 tablespoon honey (or Gevity Rx Sweet Guts™, coming soon)
Quality Sea Salt
FOR THE GREEN TAHINI SAUCE
1 medium bunch flat leaf parsley
1 bunch coriander (or just one large bunch parsley if aren’t a fan of coriander)
2 cloves garlic
50 g preserved lemon
2-3 tbs organic tahini
2 tablespoons Organic EVOO
2 tablespoons water
Juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
Sea salt flakes and pepper to taste
Toasted flaked almonds
Toasted sesame seeds
Olive oil and lemon juice for drizzling
WHAT TO DO:
Preheat the oven to 200c. Pop the carrots on a baking tray lined with baking paper then coat them with olive oil, honey and salt.
Place the carrots in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until crispy and cooked through.
While the carrots are roasting let's make the hummus. Add all the ingredients for the hummus to a blender or thermomix and process until a hummus consistency forms. You may need to add extra psyllium husk to thicken the mixture, just see how you go.
Now pop all the ingredients for the green tahini in a blender / thermomix and process until a smooth green sauce forms, adjusting water for consistency.
To assemble, spread hummus over your serving plate and top with the carrots. Garnish with the green tahini sauce, and any of the optional extras listed above
TIP - to save time, and if you can tolerate chickpeas, you can use traditional homemade or store bought hummus.
