Carrot Hummus

carrot hummus

 This carrot hummus recipe is quick, easy and delicious!  It’s especially wonderful when made with carrots fresh from the garden or Farmer’s Market! It’s super healthy, attractive, packed with protein and an excellent addition for a weight conscious diet.

Carrot Hummus

1 cup (packed) cooked carrots

1 can garbanzo beans (save liquid)

¼ cup tahini

2 Tbsp lemon juice (fresh is best)

2 garlic cloves, minced (I use 4)

½ tsp ground cumin

¼ tsp sea salt

2 Tbsp fresh parsley

 

Put all ingredients except parsley into food processor and blend until smooth. If consistency is too thick, thin with saved liquid from garbanzo beans. Add parsley and pulse a few times.

 

Refrigerate.

Prepare at least 2 hours before serving for flavors to blend.

Serve with chips or vegetable sticks.

  1. This does look delicious. I’d probably up the garlic as you did, because, well there just can’t be too much garlic can there?

  2. Mmm. I love hummus and this sounds so unique! I love the idea of using fresh carrots from the farmer’s market (I don’t have a garden). Thanks for sharing – – I’ll definitely be trying this!

  3. I can’t wait to try this – I recently went a little crazy and purchased a vitamix – and I’ve been experimenting with both hummus and salsa! Don’t plan on buying either store bought again!
