Roasted Carrot Hummus

I love making homemade hummus - it's so economical, you can make it taste exactly how you want, and it's incredibly simple to do.

This recipe is great because roasted carrots give it a wonderful sweetness, and a great color - and who doesn't love roasted garlic in their hummus?

For extra flavor and a great presentation, serve it with a dusting of paprika or sumac. I love to eat it with root vegetable chips, but it's equally great with raw vegetables or pita chips.

    This could be my new favorite hummus! My husband and I watched the episode with this recipe when it aired. We made the hummus that night. I love it! We had it for dinner with a piece of roasted chicken on top…delicious! I took the leftover hummus to work with cut up veggies to snack on. This one is a keeper! Thank You!
