This super Easy Healthy Raw Carrot Hummus is simply blitzed-up, which has all the fresh sweet flavor of a raw carrot, with a touch of creaminess from the tahini and oil.
Ramp up the raw factor by eating it with a cucumber or celery stick, or stuffed inside lettuce leaves – or alongside a dressed salad of lettuce and sugar snap peas.
I personally love, love, love hummus! I could literally eat it with a spoon! So, I like to try different ways of making it, and for me, this carrot hummus is an absolute winner. It tastes so fresh and not as heavy as other hummuses, its perfect for a light snack, which I love in the afternoon!
it’s so easy to make this Easy Healthy Raw Carrot Hummus, simply blitz the carrots until finely chopped, then add the rest of the ingredients and blitz again until smooth. It may take a few minutes though, and you will need to stop a few times to scrape off the sides of the food processor, but patience is key here! I mean, the whole process of making this hummus won’t take you more than 10 minutes!
