Roasted Carrot Hummus

This creamy and sweet hummus is made from roasted carrots - not a bean in site! It's perfect served with raw veggies, endive, or toasted corn tortillas. It would also be great served with wedges of whole grain pita bread.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds carrots peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • garlic minced, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Add carrots to a cookie sheet, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 30-35 minutes until well roasted and slightly browned on the bottoms.
  • Add carrots, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt to a food processor or high speed blender. Process until the mixture is very smooth, 3-5 minutes in a food processor or less time in a high speed blender.
  • Taste, and adjust salt and lemon juice to taste. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste, and freshly grated garlic, if desired. I usually leave the garlic out of this hummus.
  • Add the hummus to a container, and place the 4 cinnamon sticks along the top to infuse the hummus with flavor. Completely chill in the refrigerator before serving. Remove the cinnamon sticks and stir well when ready to serve.
