Decadent Dip: roasted carrot hummus a l'orange

Decadent Dip: roasted carrot hummus

Watch out folks; hummus is putting on his fancy pants. His orange fancy pants! 

I am a huge fan of hummus; I love making it at home even more becuase it costs a fraction of store bought and you can experiment with flavors. You also cut out some of the packaging. Triple win.

This is a recipe that I am especially proud of! It is just so delicious and the bright orange color is really beautiful too. I hope you'll try it; I bet you'll love it (almost) as much as I do.
Garnish with an orange wedge for some extra flair

Roasted Carrot Hummus a l'Orange

  • 1 16-ounce can chickpeas (aka garbonzo beans) drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup roasted carrots
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice and zest from one orange
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (1 clove or so)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin (or more, to taste)
  • black pepper and salt, so taste
1. Roast carrots until tender and nicely browned.
2. Place all ingredients in a food processor or kick-butt blender and puree until very smooth. Taste (try not to get weak in the knees) and adjust seasonings as needed
3. Try this fabulous spread on crackers, raw veggies, spread on toast and by the spoonful!Mais oui!

Gather your ingredients
Roast your carrots; no need to peel
Plop everything in the food processor et voila!
So pretty...are you licking the screen?
