Carrot Hummus Tips
How can you make carrot hummus your own?
Smoked paprika will give your carrot hummus some sweet and smoky flavor, whether you mix it in or sprinkle it on top. After preparing the hummus, you could also consider stirring in minced fresh parsley or thyme.
What other toppings can you put on carrot hummus?
Toasted pumpkin seeds or pepitas
would be delicious, and chopped, toasted walnuts would lend a bit of richness. For a juicy bite along with a snappy crunch, pomegranate arils look like little gems atop a fresh bowl of hummus. Don’t be intimidated: It’s actually easy to learn how to remove pomegranate seeds
What else can you serve with carrot hummus?
For a sweet surprise, serve the hummus with cinnamon-spice pita chips. I also love crackers, pita bread, and fresh raw veggies with carrot hummus. You can also turn carrot hummus into a layered dip or spread it on bread to make a sandwich. Check out other recipes with hummus
to find other ways to use the savory spread.
How long will carrot hummus last?
The carrot hummus will stay fresh for 5 to 7 days in an airtight container in the fridge, though it’s unlikely to stick around that long. If you liked this recipe, try more of our hummus recipes
