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.
