Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Cooking Time 30 min


  • 350g cauliflower florets
  • 2 carrots, cut into sticks
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 2 courgettes, 50g grated, the rest cut into semi-circles
  • 3tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 150g falafel mix
  • ½tsp chilli powder
  • Cooking oil spray
  • 150g reduced-fat hummus

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Put the cauliflower and carrots in a baking tray with the olive oil and toss, then bake for 15 min or until lightly golden.

  3. Spray a heavy-based pan with oil and cook the falafel for 2–3 min on each side until browned. In a small bowl, combine the hummus with 1tbsp water.
  4. Toss the baby spinach with the roasted veg and serve topped with the falafel, with the hummus on the side.
