Carrot Hummus

Carrot Hummus

Hummus is one of those things we almost always have in our fridge, ready to pull it out in any moment when hunger kicks (or uninvited guests).

We always experiment with different variations of hummus and already have tried to do it with almost any vegetable.

This carrot hummus is one of our favorite versions of the old good, standard version of hummus.

They don`t have too much in common anymore but we still call it hummus. It is more a carrot dip or spread.

Should you decide to do it with chickpeas or tahini – it will be more hummus-like; in case you decide to not use neither chickpeas nor tahini – it´s more like spread… or dip… still super tasty, great option for breakfast, appetizer or a quick (and healthy) snack.

This recipe requires so little effort so you will never be too lazy to make it. Literally 10 minutes of actual work – the rest is just monitoring the work of your oven.

Notes

You can use 1 tbsp. of tahini or no tahini at all.
For the roasted sesame taste, spread 2 tbsp. of sesame seeds over the carrots and bake them together.
As for the herbs - you can add them to the baking tray together with the carrots or use them fresh/dried (we prefer roasting all the herbs together with the carrots for more smoky taste)
You can decorate it with some sesame seeds or chilly flakes on top
Can be served with some tortilla chips, bread sticks or any flatbread.
Home-made chapati bread, for example, goes perfectly with this carrot hummus.
