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.
- 8 carrots, steamed until soft
- Juice of one lemon
- 2 cloves garlic
- ½ tsp cumin
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt to taste
- Handful of parsley, chopped
- In a food processor or blender, add all ingredients (except for the parsley) and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
- If using parsley, toss it in at the end and pulse a few times to incorporate it.
