  • food processor


  • 4-5 carrots chopped in large chunks
  • ½ small onion cut in a couple large chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic left whole with skin on
  • olive oil, salt and pepper
  • 5 dried apricots
  • 1 juice of a lime squeeze, or cut the peel off and use the whole thing
  • 15 oz can Chickpeas (Garbanzo or any White Beans)
  • 1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5 grinds fresh pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil or more as needed


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Roast carrots, onion, and whole garlic cloves with skin on, tossed with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper for about 30 minutes or until they are starting to brown and caramelize.
  • Let roasted veggies cool slighlty and discard the garlic skins. In a food processor, add all ingredients and process. Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula and continue to process until smooth.


  • You Don't Need to Peel Carrots - I never peel carrots! Just wash them really well under running water, scrub them a bit with your hands. The outside "peel" is healthy, edible, and there's no reason to waste it!
  • How to Garnish Carrot Hummus - Although it's not an ingredient, a sprinkle of bright red paprika and a drizzle of olive oil makes this hummus look gorgeous! Add a sprinkle of fresh chopped herbs such as parsley, chives, or cilantro.
