Roasted Carrots with Hummus

{{totalReview}}
Going vegan for a holiday party? This healthy combination of vegetables makes for a guilt-free snack platter for parties or even a lazy meal in, allowing you to enjoy kebab style snacking without the need for meat! Vegetarian kebabs can be baked, toasted or grilled to a golden charred perfection, and it pairs so well with the creamy garlicky hummus. Mushrooms, bell peppers, eggplants and tempeh also make for equally delicious kebab options.

    • Place the vegetables on skewers, then roast in a preheated oven at 170°C for 20 minutes.

    Grill the vegetable skewers and pita in a grill pan on the stove if you don’t have an oven.



  3. Prepare the lettuce cups and pita

    • Toast the pita in a 170°C preheated oven for 3 minutes.
    • Wash and dry the mesclun mix, then drizzle with lemon juice.
