Roasted Carrot Hummus
We could all use a little more hummus in our lives, am I right? I’ve made hummus of just about every variety, from avocado, to edamame, kale and spinach, but I’ve never made a roasted carrot hummus until now and I’d have to say it might be my new favourite!
It’s a little sweet and a little savoury and pretty much gold on your favourite sky-high piled veggie sandwich. Isn’t it beautiful in there?
I had a ton of carrots to use up the other day and this was the perfect way to use them. Roasting the carrots first gives the hummus a beautiful, sweet and rich flavour that combined with cumin, lemon, tahini and garlic is just perfect. High in protein, fibre and vitamins make a batch to keep on hand for a healthy and tasty snack option.
This is really easy to make too. Just toss the carrots in a little oil, roast until tender and then blend up with your typical hummus ingredients: tahini, olive oil, lemon and chickpeas. I added in cumin for an extra punch of flavour that pairs beautifully with the roasted carrots.Print
