Ingredients

  • 4 medium red beets, (about 1 pound without greens), 1/2 inch of stems left intact
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound carrots, (about 8 medium), cut on the diagonal into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 small whole wheat pita breads, quartered
  • 4 ounces feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

Cook's Note

Salad can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 3 days.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss beets with 1 teaspoon oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Cover sheet with foil. Roast beets until tender, 45 to 55 minutes. Let cool. Trim and peel beets; cut into 1/2-inch cubes.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, toss carrots, 1 teaspoon oil, and 1/4 teaspoon salt on another rimmed baking sheet. Roast carrots until browned and tender, about 40 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.

  3. Step 3

    Stir lemon juice, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, the parsley, and thyme in a small bowl. Whisk in remaining 2 tablespoons oil until emulsified. Season with pepper. Toss beets and carrots with dressing in a medium bowl. To serve, divide salad, pita, feta, and hummus among 4 plates. Drizzle oil over feta and hummus on each plate.
