Some halloumi fries to dunk in your dip?
- 6.6g (0.9g saturated)
- 7.7g (3.4g sugars)
- 500g carrots, sliced into 5mm discs
- 75ml olive oil, plus extra to drizzle

- ½ tsp cumin seeds
- ½ tsp coriander seeds
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- Pinch sugar
- 400 tinned butterbeans, drained and rinsed
- Lemon juice to taste

- Heat the oven to 180°C/160°Cfan/gas 4. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
- In a bowl, toss the carrot slices with a drizzle of olive oil, the orange juice and a pinch of salt. Spread over the baking tray and roast for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Remove and allow to cool slightly.
- Toast the spices in a dry frying pan over a gentle heat for a couple of minutes, stirring, until they release their aroma. Remove from the heat, then grind in a pestle and mortar or spice grinder.
