RECIPE: Hummus Bowl with Roasted Vegetables and Sun-dried Tomato Pesto

Serves 2-4 people

1 17-oz Sabra Classic Hummus
1 small eggplant, peeled and diced
1 small zucchini, peeled and diced
2 small bell peppers (capsicum), sliced into strips
Olive oil
3 TBSP pine nuts (optional)

Sundried Tomato Pesto
½ cup sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil)
½ clove garlic, minced
¼ cup fresh parsley leaves
¼ cup fresh basil leaves
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
Salt to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
2. Take the hummus out of the refrigerator and bring to room temperature.
3. Toss the vegetables with enough olive oil to coat. Spread the veg evenly over a sheet pan, salt, and roast until tender, roughly 30 min.
4. Meanwhile, in a food processor, blend all the pesto ingredients including 3 tablespoons of olive oil (directly from the sun-dried tomato jar, if you’d like). The pesto should have a chunky consistency.
5. Assembly: Spread hummus on the bottom of each serving bowl. On top, spoon a line of pesto and arrange the vegetables on either side. Sprinkle with pine nuts.
