Servings: 10 or more


  • 12 asparagus, trimmed and halved
  • 2 carrots, peeled and halved
  • 6 oz thinly sliced medium-rare roast beef (about 12 slices)
  • 2 tbsp Filippo Berio Classic Pesto
  • 1 red pepper, cut into matchsticks
  • 1/2 English cucumber, cut into matchsticks
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup prepared hummus


    • Fill bowl with ice water. Place steamer inside saucepan of water (steamer should not touch water). Bring to boil; steam asparagus for 3 to 5 minutes or until tender-crisp. Immediately plunge into ice water. Cut carrots lengthwise into quarters; steam as directed for asparagus.
    • On working surface, place 1 slice roast beef; spread with some of the pesto. Top with 2 asparagus halves, and 2 pieces each carrot, red pepper and cucumber. Roll up tightly and slice in half diagonally; secure each with toothpick. Wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. Sprinkle with salt and pepper just before serving. Serve with hummus for dipping.



    • Add mango and cilantro to roll-ups for an Asian twist.
    • If you have extra carrots, quarter them and serve on the side with extra hummus.
