Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped carrots, about 56 carrots
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil (for roasting)
  • 1 19 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained (2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup tahini (60 g)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • up to 2 tbsp water, aquafaba or olive oil, if needed

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the chopped carrots on a baking pan and toss with 1/2 tsp olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Roast for 30-35 minutes until tender.
  4. While the carrots are roasting, add the chickpeas, tahini, lemon, garlic, cumin to a food processor and mix until smooth. You can use a blender as well but it will take a bit more work to get it to blend.
  5. When the carrots have finished roasting, add to a food processor and blend into the rest of the ingredients.
  6. If it’s too thick, use up to 2 tbsp water, aquafaba or olive oil to adjust the consistency, if needed. I added about 2 tbsp water. You may need a little more depending on the consistency of your tahini.
