Roasted Carrot Hummus is an easy way to make a favorite healthy snack even healthier, and makes for some fun colors and delicious flavors. Homemade hummus is worth the extra time, much fresher and healthier than the grocery store version, and it can keep in the fridge all week or half of the batch can be frozen for later. A food processor is the best for super smooth hummus, hiding those veggies inside for picky kids. We dip ours with tortilla chips, pretzels, pita chips or cut up veggies, great on a veggie sandwich or wrap too!

Plenty for healthy snacking all week!
