Roasted Carrot Hummus

Roasted Carrot Hummus

This is real good - one of Phil's creations, sweet and savoury and hard to beat. Goes great on top of The Happy Pear's Beetroot Burgers or served as a dip in its own right.

For how many? Makes about 600g

Ingredients

  • 400g carrots
  • 1/2 x 400g tin of chickpeas
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp ground cumin

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 200C/400C/gas mark 6. Cut the carrots into bite-size pieces, put them on a baking tray and roast them in the oven for 25 minutes.

Drain the chickpeas and rinse thoroughly. Peel and finely chop the garlic. Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth, adding a little water if necessary. Check the seasoning and add more salt and pepper if necessary.
