This smoky and spicy hummus is finger lickin’ good! While a classic hummus will always be one of my favorite things ever, I changed it up a bit by adding some sweet caramelized carrots and spicy smoky harissa. Yum!
Yeilds: 2 Cups
2 cups cooked garbanzo beans
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup tahini paste
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (adjust based on consistency)
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp harissa paste
1 cup carrots, cut into sticks
1 tsp salt (adjust based on taste)
1 tbsp butter or olive oil for cooking
1. In pan over low heat, melt the butter/oil and add the carrot sticks to it in a single layer. Let them cook on low for around 10-12 minutes on each side until they begin to caramelize.
2. Blend all the ingredients, including the carrots, and serve with warm pita, crudites or use as a spread on sandwiches or wraps.
