This yummy and healthy dip/spread recipe comes from the wonderful book "Mon premier dîner végétarien" by Alice Hart. It makes for a very soft, silky hummus that has a slightly sweet flavour from the carrots.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook carrot with the pinch of salt in boiling water until very tender (about 8 minutes). Drain and combine with the other ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Blend until smooth. I used a hand-held blender for this and left a few chunks of carrot intact for texture.
  3. Serve with dippers of your choice.

Oh wow! Was this ever good! I don't know if it was the carrot or cardamon or apple cider vinegar that turned this into the world's best hummus, but that is exactly what it is!

I just love hummus and the carrots in this version add a nice fresh flavour. I chose to use the apple cider vinegar but can see that lemon juice would be great too. There were no cans of chick peas that size at the store so I doubled the recipe. Good thing because it's great on Ryvita crispbreads and I have a lot of those! ;) Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks Lalaloula! :)
