I am not going to lie, I did not plan on posting this recipe. There was a recent potluck I needed to bring a finger food to pass. So, I just threw a bunch of ingredients into a food processor, prayed over it, and it turned out amazing! Long story short, I knew I wanted to share the recipe with all of you. You probably have everything you need in your pantry right now.
Disclaimer. I used canned carrots. I NEVER BUY CANNED CARROTS. One day, I was cleaning deep in the back of my cabinet where we have our cans, and back in Narnia, I found a can of carrots. I had no idea how to eat them. Basically, they are mush anyways; so, I decided to make them into hummus. It is super easy, next time I will probably roast fresh carrots. But hey, go with what you have.
- 1 can chickpeas
- 1/2 cup chickpea liquid
- 5 cloves garlic
- 1 1/2 cup sliced carrots (or 1 can)
- Turmeric (2 drops essential oil or 1 tsp)
- Lemon (5 drops essential oil or you can use the juice from 1 lemon)
- Pinch of Crushed Red Pepper
- Salt and Pepper
- Roast carrots and garlic at 400 degrees until they are fork tender. (15-20 minutes) Watch and make sure the garlic does not burn
- Strain chickpeas, keep the liquid
- Put roasted carrots, garlic, chickpeas, turmeric, lemon, 1/2 cup of chickpea liquid, crushed red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper into a food processor
- Blend until creamy. You may need some extra liquid if you need it
- Garnish with red pepper flakes
Try not to eat it all in one sitting, but I totally understand if you do.
