Roasted Carrot and Coriander Hummus





So today I am posting an easy to make, healthy and tasty recipe Roasted Carrot and Coriander Hummus. Hummus is one of the favourite dips in our family, whether it is Roasted Pepper hummus, jalapeƱo Hummus, or Caramelized Onion hummus GI rating of the CHICK PEAS is: LOW 28. That means that the carbs in chickpeas have a slow effect on blood sugar levels so the lower the GI value the better the food is for you ! This is one of the reasons I use chickpeas in a variety of healthy dishes..,and one of them is always Hummus :)



You will need:-
  • 2 medium size carrots washed, peeled and cubed
  • small bunch of fresh coriander ( cleaned and washed )
  • 1 cup boiled Chickpeas or canned chickpeas will be fine too ( water drained and reserve )
  • Salt as needed ( if you're using canned chickpeas, use less )
  • 5-6 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 4-5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 3-4 tbsp lemon juice
  • Few fresh coriander leaves and carrots julienne for garnishing

Method :-
Heat oven to gas mark 6 , 200C/180F.
Bring a pan of water to boil, add carrots and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Drain the water and toss in roasting tray with little oil .
Roast the carrots for 10-15 minutes.
In a blender or mixer add all the other ingredients with roasted carrots . Add little water or oil for a smooth hummus. Blend till you achieve your desired consistency.

Serve with a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil on top, and garnish with fresh coriander leaves and some Carrot Julienne. 
Enjoy this very healthy and low GI hummus as an appetizer, dip, or spread in sandwiches and rolls.

  5. Looks delicious, but shouldn't the oven temp be higher in farenheit than in centigrade? 200C = 392F. Gotta try this recipe, though!! :)
