Monday's menu will be Mediterranean with Moroccan M'smen flatbread topped with market vegetables, lentils and rice with (or without) lamb, two kinds of hummus, green salad and plum cake.

Patty Pan's Neighborhood Kitchen: 15550 27th Ave NE, Shoreline 98155.

The dinners are a flat rate of $12/person (plus tax). For $10 (plus tax) discounted tickets if you prepay via PayPal by 4pm on the day of the dinner. Kids half price.

And here's the recipe for Roasted Carrot Spread

Roasted Carrot Spread (makes 1 to 2 cups)

1 pound carrots
1 bulb garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 bunch parsley
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
Black pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cut the carrots into two-inch lengths. Break the garlic bulb into individual cloves, but don’t peel them. Toss the carrot chunks and the garlic cloves with olive oil: using your hands is the most effective way to coat them.

Arrange the carrots on a baking pan and the garlic cloves on another part of the same pan. Roast until the carrots just start to brown and the garlic cloves soften to the texture of toothpaste. If the garlic finishes cooking before the carrots, remove it from the pan and continue cooking the carrots. The garlic will take 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the size of the cloves, and the carrots will take 30 to 45 minutes.

When the garlic is cool enough to handle, squeeze the pulp out of the skins and puree it along with the carrots, parsley, lemon, salt, and pepper.
