Buy a lovely bunch of leafy carrots for this recipe. Here, the tops are made into a bright green pistou and the roots roasted to bring out all of their amazing sweetness. Hummus addicts will be hooked on this carrot variation.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
400g bunch carrots with tops
5-6 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
1 tablespoon za’atar
handful flat-leaf parsley
2 garlic cloves, bashed
1 lemon, juiced
400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons tahini
4 large fluffy flatbreads
100g feta
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Cut the leafy green tops from the carrots and reserve. Halve any fat carrots lengthways, then tip into a roasting tin and toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil, the cumin seeds, and 1 teaspoon of the za’atar. Season, then roast for 45 minutes, stirring halfway through until golden and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, make the pistou. Wash the carrot tops really well to remove any grit, pat dry, then roughly chop on a chopping board. Add the parsley, 1 garlic clove, and the lemon zest. Run the knife over the ingredients until really finely chopped. Scrape into a bowl and add 2–3 tablespoons of the oil and a splash of lemon juice to make a spoonable sauce.
  3. Tip the chickpeas into a food processor with the remaining garlic clove, 2 tablespoons of the oil, the remaining lemon juice, and the tahini. Roughly chop one-third of the roasted carrots and add into the processor with 50ml cold water, and pulse until smooth. Season to taste.
  4. Heat the flatbreads in a warm oven, spread with the carrot hummus, lay some roasted carrots on top, and spoon over the pistou. Scatter with the feta and remaining za’atar.
