Creamy Carrot Dip

Creamy Carrot Dip

It tastes like hummus. It has the consistency of hummus. It even kind a looks like hummus, save for the orange hue. But it’s completely bean-less.

This recipe is for those of you who love the flavour of hummus, but don’t dig the toots that often accompany eating beans (though to make ’em more digestible, check out this post). And if your toots are out of control all of the time, might I suggest joining my upcoming Secrets to Digestive Healing workshop.

Carrots not your fave? Try two cups of your favourite vegetable – sweet potato, squash, cauliflower, red pepper, or mix it up with a medley.

    Wow! Who would have thought you could make hummus with carrots? (well, I guess you, but..)
    This looks super fantastic!

    This recipe doesn’t work- there is no where near the amount of moisture to make a dip .

      Hey Julie! Sorry this recipe didn’t work out for you, especially since it’s one of my favourites. Between the cooked carrots, lemon juice and olive oil, I’ve always had enough liquid to make this recipe. You could add some more olive oil or water to thin it out. If you’d like me to troubleshoot this recipe further for you, feel free to send me an email at info [AT] sondibruner.com.
