Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 60 minutes

Total time: 70 minutes

Servings: 4



🌱500 g carrots

🌱500 g parsnip

🌱olive oil for cooking

🌱Salt & pepper to taste

🌱1 tsp smoked paprika

🌱1/2 tsp coriander powder

🌱1/2 tsp garlic powder

For the sauce:

🌱100 ml plant-based yogurt

🌱200 g cucumber

🌱1 tsp herbs de provence

🌱2 cloves of garlic

How to prepare:

  1. Start by boiling carrots and parsnips with their skin on in salted water until they are tender. This will help them stick together when smashed.
  2. Once the veggies are boiled, place them on an oven tray lined with parchment paper and use a bowl to gently flatten them. You can watch a demonstration of this technique in the video above.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together smoked paprika, coriander powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and olive oil to create a spice mixture.
  4. Brush the spice mixture over the flattened veggies and bake them in the oven at 220°C for approximately 40 minutes, or until they are crispy and golden brown.
  5. While the veggies are baking, prepare the fresh sauce. In a food processor, combine cucumber, garlic, herbs de Provence, plant-based yogurt, and salt. Blend until the sauce is smooth and creamy.
  6. Once the veggies are finished baking, serve them with the fresh sauce on top or as a dip on the side for a delicious and healthy meal. Enjoy!
