by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 17, 2018

I simply checked the model historical past of my Roasted Carrot and Dill Hummus Google Doc and realized that I first examined this hummus recipe on January 10, 2015. What the heck? THREE years in the past?! #hellotimewarp Better late than by no means, I say…though I do know a couple of people who find themselves seemingly baffled by its turtle-paced cross to the end line! 

My kiddos are hummus fiends (they’ll truly eat it by the spoonful…I do not know who they bought that behavior from…), they usually wolfed up this roasted carrot model very quickly. I like figuring out that it’s packing a pair further veggies—what’s to not love a few sneaky vitamin enhance? 

I do know what you’re considering: Ange, is that this hummus actually price roasting carrots for? I agree, it’s kind of a giant ask for a hummus recipe, however each time I make this model I’m reminded how a lot I LOVE the flavour combo. The smoky charred carrots simply give it that little something-something…to not point out a little bit of candy creamy-dreamy-ness (technical time period) alongside a touch of dill—so vivid and contemporary!

A pair enjoyable tips: Since I’m already roasting carrots for the recipe, I like so as to add a couple of extras together with another veggies, like broccoli, for dipping into the hummus or layering in a wrap. So throw no matter veggies you may have onto the roasting pan and go wild. Or you would possibly even toss on a handful of chickpeas to get in on the roasting occasion—they’re additionally nice in a wrap, served on salad, or sprinkled as a garnish on the hummus itself. Another trick I exploit every now and then is to roast the carrots earlier than mattress and pop them right into a container within the fridge in a single day. The subsequent day, the carrots are able to be thrown into the meals processor with the opposite hummus ingredients so all of it comes collectively tremendous quick. 

Before I get to the recipe, I’d additionally like to say that The Oh She Glows Recipe App is still on sale for 99 cents in the iTunes Store!
