A combination of hummus recipes that I've found online and in recipe books. I especially like this recipe for its cool carrot taste. Very refreshing dip for crackers, veggies, or used in a pita or wrap.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add baby carrots to food processor and pulse to mince well.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, except water.
  3. Process until all vegetables and beans are well blended and creamy. Process less time for a chunkier hummus.
  4. Add up to a 1/4 cup water, as needed, to create the desired consistency.
  5. NOTE: The carrots contain a lot of water. The hummus will not dry out as much as hummus usually does when stored. This will keep for about a week in the fridge. I haven't yet tried freezing this recipe.
  6. VARIATION: Add some dried dill weed, fresh thyme or basil, or another favorite herb. Cayenne pepper, jalapenos, chilis, or tabasco sauce can be added for a spicy version.
  7. Makes about 3 cups. Six 1/2 cup servings.

This was great! I love the sweetness of the carrots contrasted with the tiny bite of the garlic. I did tweak this a little bit, though; I went back to tahini (instead of using peanut butter) and probably used too much roasted red pepper. It was a little thin and runny, but that may well be because I used more peppers and possibly more carrots. (I didn't need to add the 1/4 cup water.) It was delicious! Thanks for posting.

This is really good! I made a double batch of it for a pot luck and people really liked it. The carrots were a refreshing addition indeed. I substituted homemade almond butter for the peanut butter and olive oil for the water. After tasting it, I added a lot more salt and garlic and some chili sauce. But I liked that the recipe doesn't have too much of those things to begin with so that you can adjust it to your taste. Thank you for posting this! I will definitely make it again.
