Put down the pita! Hummus has more uses than just a party dip served next to veggies. In this meal, chicken breasts are slathered with the chickpea goodness and then broiled, hummus locking in the flavor and juiciness. Served next to a roasted vegetable medley, and seasoned with smoky paprika and distinctive cumin, this low-cal, low-carb dish uses hummus to satisfy the health nuts among us.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut cauliflower florets into bite-sized pieces. Stem, seed, and cut red bell pepper into 1’’ dice. Trim ends off green beans. Set aside ½ tsp. paprika and ½ tsp. cumin for garnish. Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Roast the Vegetables

    Place cauliflower, green beans, and red bell pepper on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and season with ½ tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. pepper, remaining cumin, and remaining paprika. Toss to coat and spread into a single layer. Roast until cauliflower is tender and browned, 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and turn on broiler. While vegetables roast, sear chicken.
