Expert Tips

  • This recipe is great for reducing food waste – try using other vegetables that you have in the fridge e.g. baby spinach, mushrooms, or leftover roasted vegetables.
  • Cook some extra roasted vegetables and enjoy the next day as roasted vegetable and hummus wraps.
  • Try with any other cheese that you have, e.g. 40g grated hard cheese or ½ pack (65g) thinly sliced reduced fat soft mozzarella.
  • Serve with mixed salad leaves, smashed avocado or homemade slaw made with shredded red cabbage, carrots & onion.
