Roasted Carrot Hummus with turmeric healthy creamy vegan recipe

Bringing you my delicious  Roasted Carrot Hummus!  This healthy protein rich, creamy dip is a sure shot crowd pleaser.  And I promise, you’ll never go back to store-bought hummus again!

 

A good hummus really draws attention with its texture and flavour. It’s not complicated to make in the least. The ingredients are few and you can easily play around with the taste, according to your preference. Basic hummus is like a blank canvas, ready to absorb a variety of flavours like I did with this Roasted Carrot  Hummus.

 

Roasting vegetables is my favourite way of cooking them. It’s an easy hands off method and brings the best out of them. Roasting caramelizes natural sugars in the vegetables, making flavours intense and slightly sweet. And those little crispy charred bits are pure gold! So for this recipe, I just massaged a couple of carrots and garlic cloves with olive oil, seasoned with salt & pepper, threw in the oven for 20 minutes. That’s it!

One of my best kitchen hacks is to have cooked chickpeas in my freezer at all times. It’s so handy for whipping up quick curries, adding to salads, smooshing for sandwiches..and of course for hummus. It takes all of five minutes to make this dip once you have the chickpeas handy..no more, trust me.

So here’s a dreamy light hummus,  golden hued from the carrots and turmeric, flecked  with  green cilantro ( coriander). Spoon it on to a plate or a bowl, make  little swirls, pour over some olive oil. You can add some pomegranate arils, toasted sesame, pumpkin seeds, maybe some cooked chickpeas, paprika…really anything you fancy.

Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans, cooked
  • 2 Carrots
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp Tahini
  • 1 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Cumin/ Jeera
  • 4-5 tbsp Extra virgin Olive oil plus 1 tbsp for roasting carrots & garlic
  • 1/4 cup water or chickpea cooking liquid plus more if needed
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh Cilantro/Coriander, chopped,a small handful You can use parsley if you like or leave the herbs out altogether
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 200C. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil or parchment paper.
  2. Peel the carrots. Place on the baking tray with the garlic. Rub 1 tbsp olive oil on the vegetables and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked through. Let them cool.
  3. Once the vegetables are cooled, add them to the food processor along with the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, turmeric, cumin, olive oil, water ( or chickpea cooking liquid)and salt. Blitz till smooth. Taste and adjust for seasoning.
  4. If the hummus is too thick, add some more liquid. Once your hummus has reached the consistency you prefer, add the herbs and blitz for a couple minutes extra to make it creamier and fluffier. This will also ensure the herbs don't get completely blended in the dip and look like bright green flecks in the hummus.
  5. Spoon on to a bowl or plate, top with olive oil and serve. Enjoy!
