  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

For the Parsley

For the Crostini

Instructions

To Make the Curried Carrots

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Add the carrot slices to a bowl and toss with the coconut oil, curry powder, and sea salt.
  • Line a pan with parchment paper and spread the carrots out evenly over the pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until slightly tender but not mushy. Let cool slightly.

To Make the Lemony Hummus

  • Add the chickpeas, lemon juice, water, tahini, garlic, and sea salt to a food processor. Process for 3-4 minutes or until smooth and creamy. Transfer the hummus to a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to assemble.

To Make the Parsley

  • Add the parsley to a small bowl.
  • Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, and sea salt. Pour the mixture over the parsley and toss to coat. Refrigerate until ready to assemble.

To Make the Crostini

  • Turn your broiler on high.
  • Line a pan with parchment paper. Spread the baguette slices out over the pan. Drizzle or brush each slice with a small amount of olive oil.
  • Broil the baguette slices for 1-2 minutes, watching them the entire time to ensure that they do not burn.
  • Remove from oven and let cool slightly so that you can handle the crostini.

To Assemble the Crostini

  • Slather each piece of baguette with lemony hummus and top with 2-3 carrot slices, a small sprig of parsley, and a sprinkling of coriander seeds. Place on serving tray or platter and repeat with all slices of baguette.
  • Serve immediately.
