Garlic hummus with cumin roasted vegetables, garnished with a lemon herb salad and finished with a sprinkle of toasted seeds.
1. Set oven to 220ºC. Trim carrots and wedge beetroots. Toss on a lined oven tray with 1/2 tbsp cumin, 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper (see notes). Roast in oven for 20-25 minutes until tender.

2. Zest the lemon and set aside. Blend drained chickpeas with 1/2 lemon juice, 1 small crushed garlic clove, 2 tbsp olive oil and 1/4 cup water. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

3. Whisk together reserved lemon zest with remaining lemon juice, 1 tbsp vinegar and 1/4 cup olive oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Roughly chop parsley and mint. Deseed and slice cucumber. Add to bowl along with spinach. Toss to dress and set aside.

4. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat. Add seed mix and toast for 3-4 minutes until golden. Remove and set aside.

5. Slice halloumi and coat with 1 tsp paprika and 1 tbsp oil. Cook in pan for 2-3 minutes each side.

6. Spread hummus over plates. Top with roast vegetables, halloumi and salad. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle over toasted seeds.

Keep beetroot and carrots separate on the tray to avoid staining.
Scrub any sandy carrots with a dish brush.
