Recipe: Vegan Carrot Hummus


  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 can (15 ounces) cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)
  • Juice of 1 lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons water (as needed for consistency)
  • Optional garnishes: olive oil, chopped fresh parsley, and a sprinkle of smoked paprika


Roasting the Carrots and Garlic:
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Place the chopped carrots and garlic cloves on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat the vegetables evenly.
  3. Roast the carrots and garlic in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the carrots are tender and slightly caramelized. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly.
Preparing the Hummus:
  1. In a food processor, combine the roasted carrots and garlic, cooked chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, ground cumin, ground coriander, and smoked paprika.
  2. Process the mixture until it starts to come together. While the food processor is running, drizzle in water, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired hummus consistency. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you go.
  3. Taste the hummus and adjust the seasoning with more salt, pepper, or smoked paprika if desired. Blend again to incorporate.
  1. Transfer the Vegan Carrot Hummus to a serving bowl. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil, sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley, and a dash of smoked paprika for garnish.
  2. Serve your Vegan Carrot Hummus with fresh vegetable sticks, pita bread, or your favorite crackers.
