  • 1 cup vegetable broth

  • cup dried split peas, rinsed and drained

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¾ teaspoon ground coriander

  • ¾ teaspoon ground cumin

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 lemon

  • 3 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame seed paste)

  • 1 1 pound eggplant, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 cup sliced zucchini

  • 1 medium red or yellow bell pepper, cut into bite-size strips

  • 1 medium red onion, cut into wedges

  • 4 individual flatbreads

  • Lemon wedges


  1. For hummus, in a small saucepan combine broth, split peas, 2 of the garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp. of the coriander, 1/2 tsp. of the cumin, 1/4 tsp. of the salt, and 1/4 tsp. of the black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 45 minutes or until very tender and liquid is absorbed. Cool slightly. Remove 2 tsp. zest and squeeze 3 Tbsp. juice from lemon. Transfer broth mixture to a food processor. Add 1 tsp. of the lemon zest, the lemon juice, 1 Tbsp. of the oil, and the tahini. Cover and process until smooth.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425°F. In a 15x10-inch baking pan combine eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper, onion, and remaining 1 garlic clove. Drizzle with remaining 2 Tbsp. oil and sprinkle with remaining coriander, cumin, salt, and black pepper; toss to coat. Roast 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender and starting to brown, stirring once. Remove from oven. Stir in remaining 1 tsp. lemon zest.

  3. Place flatbreads on a large baking sheet. Bake 5 minutes. Spread flatbreads with hummus and top with roasted vegetable mixture. Bake 5 minutes more or until heated through. Serve with lemon wedges and, if desired, drizzle with additional oil.
