Recipes : Handmade Hummus with Carrot – Delicious and Refreshing!

Carrot Hummus

Orginal Recipe is from Diabetic Living Magazine

Two things that you might have thought don’t go together very well, but boy oh boy do they ever! Carrots, rich in beta-carotene, combine with fiber-filled garbanzo beans to make this a great dip recipe for snacks.  This dip is even a fantastic spread on sandwiches!

1 cup chopped carrots
1 (15 ounces) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
¼ cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
Two tablespoons lemon juice
Two cloves garlic quartered
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon salt
Two tablespoons snipped fresh parsley

  2. In a food processor combine cooked carrots, garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, and salt.
  3. Cover and process until mixture are smooth.
  4. Transfer to a small serving bowl.
  5. Stir in parsley.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and chill for at least 1 hour or up to 3 days.
