A zesty dip or spread to pack in the veggies! Spicy garden carrot hummus is gluten-free & vegan without the oil. A healthy seasonal take to use your garden’s fresh carrots and herbs in a crowd-pleasing favorite recipe!
It’s funny how I am such a hummus fiend, but I’ve only ever posted 3 hummus recipes on the blog. It’s rather sad! I always think a certain hummus recipe is on the blog, but then I go to look and realize it still isn’t published, but sitting in the “recipe cue”. So I feel the need to slowly remedy that, starting with some carrot goodness! We all love carrots right now, right? I know I do; I’m obsessed!
Hummus is great for dipping things like carrots. You can dip your big ‘ole carrots right in the carrot hummus, maybe some celery, cucumber. But, my favorite, you can spread it. You can spread it on a BAGEL! Right? I’ve said it before, but one of my main lunch choices is a hummus and veggie sandwich. I usually you corn tortillas, but I’m thinking a bagel wouldn’t be too bad of an option either!
It’s just the perfect savory spread when I don’t want a nut butter and jam sandwich. It’s filling and plant-powered-protein-packed. Hummus is the all-purpose “condiment” to always have in your kitchen. The other week I made a MASSIVE batch, 2 types, of hummus. I keep it out in the fridge for a week and then what isn’t used gets frozen in little plastic baggies or individual portions. I am now stocked on hummus for about a month though! I’m not complaining though, it’s such a relief to know I just have to pop it out of the bag, into a bowl, and microwave. Yes! Warmed hummus is so delicious! I like it warm much better than cold! Give it a try!
Spicy Garden Carrot Hummus
- In a large food processor, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth!
Hummus is probably the easiest food to meal-prep (if that’s your thing!) I feel like it’s a “month-prep” task for me, but I’m only making it for one person and the batches I make are huge…so it lasts! Throwing a bunch of beans, veggies, and spices into the processor and pressing a button, couldn’t be easier! So cooks and non-cooks alike, everyone can make hummus! Woohoo!
So tell me:
+ Spicy, sweet, plain, how do you like your hummus? I’ll take it anyway!
+ If you are a homemade hummus-maker, do you prep a HUGE batch like me?
