This is a very simple and tasty, creamy vegan dip to serve with pitta bread or crudités, and is good for pre-dinner nibbles, or as a starter or for a party table. I'm not really sure how many this recipe serves but with pitta bread, there would be plenty for at least 6 to 8 people.

Lovely recipe and really easy too. I didn't bother with veg stock and used coriander instead of parsley. I can't wait to take some to work with crudités and bread for lunch!-31 May 2015

Reaaly tasty. I love hummus and this is a very nice version. I wasn't too fussy about exact measurements. I used 250g cooked chickpeas and 3 carrots and same amount of spice and parsley. Will make again.-26 Apr 2015

Roasted Carrot Hummus

Looking for a quick and easy appetizer to whip up this holiday weekend? If so, you should try this Roasted Carrot Hummus! It is creamy, flavorful, and packed with plant protein.

This hummus is topped with seasoned chickpeas, roasted carrots, fresh cilantro, lemon, and sesame seeds. This hummus makes a wonderful snack or appetizer. Pair it with fresh vegetables, crackers or pita bread.

Have you tried roasted carrots in your hummus before? It adds a sweet yet roasted flavor to your hummus that is absolutely delicious. For this hummus recipe I use an equal mix of chickpeas and carrots. But if you want a stronger carrot flavor add additional roasted carrots.


  • When prepping your chickpeas or garbanzo beans I highly recommend taking most of the skins off of the beans. I find it makes the hummus extra creamy. If you don’t have time, no worries. Leaving the skins on the beans will still make a tasty hummus.
  • I love using chickpeas or garbanzo beans that are made from scratch. However, if you are short on time you can also use them from a can.
  • If you are using canned beans make sure to drain and rinse the beans to get any excess can juice that might still be on the beans. Then using a kitchen towel dry the excess water from the beans really making sure to get any water off them before blending.
  • For this recipe I use both olive oil and water. However, if you are oil free you can skip the olive oil and just use water instead.


I wanted to share some of the recipe ingredients that you can swap out in case you do not have the ones I listed in your pantry.

Olive Oil- Avocado Oil or water if you are oil free

Chickpeas or Garbanzo Beans

Garlic Cloves – Garlic Powder

You can get super creative when it comes to adding toppings to your hummus. For this hummus I used roasted carrots, seasoned chickpeas, fresh cilantro, sesame seeds, and lemon.

Almost every time I make hummus I like to switch it up and use what I have in my refrigerator or pantry. Below are some of my go-to toppings.

  • Microgreens
  • Fresh Herbs
  • Pine nuts
  • Feta Cheese
  • Roasted Garlic
  • Cumin Powder
  • Olive Oil

To make the seasoned chickpeas that I use preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and line a baking pan with parchment paper. In a bowl add your chickpeas, ½ tsp natural oil, 1/8 tsp salt, ¼ tsp cumin, ¼ tsp garlic powder and toss. Lay the chickpeas on the pan evenly and bake for 10-15 minutes or until your desired crispness.

If you make this Roasted Carrot Hummus I would love it if you would snap a photo of your food and share it with me on instagram @itsallgoodvegan. I can’t wait to see how you like it.

I’ve been a bit hooked on roasted carrots lately & never make any secret of my love of legumes, so combining the two is a marriage made in heaven in my book. Since I had 2 cans of chick peas on hand and a few carrots in the back of the veggie bin, a roasted carrot hummus recipe was soon in the works.

As a starting point, I used a traditional hummus recipe from Cooking Light rather than how I usually make my hummus (since I tend to go a bit heavy on the lemon). I did need to make more alterations beyond adding the carrots, to reach to right hummus consistency while keeping the flavors in-line. Most of these were related to needing more liquid to compensate for the roasted carrots.

The recipe made a nice big batch of carrot hummus. Roasting the carrots both brought out the sweetness in them and softened them for blending. The fresh garlic was also roasted, so it wouldn’t be as sharp in flavor. I enjoyed the hummus as is, and added Vietnamese Chili-Garlic sauce to some of it for a bit of kick. Now that I really liked… hot-savory-sweet hummus…. yum!

How to Make Carrot Hummus

I love making homemade hummus because it’s so easy. This recipe uses canned chickpeas to make the process even easier. I read a tip recently that you can make homemade hummus even creamier by cooking the chickpeas a little longer.

  1. Process all ingredients in a food processor (or blender) until combined.
  2. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time until you get the desired consistency.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the top before serving.

Steps in this recipe

  1. Start with cooked chickpeas or garbanzos, either canned or homemade – here are directions for three ways to cook them.
  2. Coat the cut carrots and garlic cloves with olive oil and roast
  3. Prepare the quick harissa while the vegetables are roasting – see directions in the recipe

If you have a chance to make this recipe, please leave me a comment so that I know how it went.


Roasted Carrot Hummus

My favorite thing about this hummus? The color! I love the shade of vibrant orange. It’s so much better than the typical brownish tan color of hummus. The hummus is made from caramelized roasted carrots, garlic, turmeric, and of course chickpeas. All pulsed to the best creamy texture.

I haven’t always loved hummus. It wasn’t until I tried homemade hummus that I loved it. It might have been the seasonings, or it might have been the freshness, but either way my opinion of hummus changed. In the best way!

It’s not every day that I make homemade hummus. Although I’m not sure why I don’t, it’s so easy to make and switch up the seasonings. I do like certain brands of store bought hummus and sometimes the flavors are too awesome to pass up: hatch chili, cauliflower, strawberry!?

Speaking of hatch chilies, have you ever had them? Hatch chili season is short – usually from August through September. They are grown in New Mexico, but my grocery store always has bins of fresh hatch chilies! I’m looking forward to buying some soon. And testing some hatch chili recipes!

This is another recipe from Chloe Flavor. If you haven’t read her cookbook yet, I’d highly recommend it! or at least check it out from your local library. Every recipe I’ve made has been delicious and she uses readily available vegan ingredients.

The turmeric also helps to add to the beautiful orange color. While I only put a bit of red pepper flakes in my hummus, you can add more if you’re looking for something spicier!

Normally, fresh hummus whips up in under 5 minutes. But because we are roasting the carrots, it takes a little bit more time. You can either roast the carrots the day before or set the timer for roasting and do other things in the meantime. The carrots don’t need much attention, just stir them once throughout the roasting and they’ll be golden brown to perfection.

Roasted garlic and carrot hummus recipe - Recipes

Easter makes me think that carrots are the name of the game (wait till you see what I have lined up for you tomorrow by the way). I guess it’s because of bunnies and the idea that bunnies like carrots. And today Pia asked me WHY bunnies were the symbol of Easter when it was about Jesus (she goes to catholic school) and if the Easter Bunny was real (gahhhh. ) I was parking the car and suddenly got reeaaallly into my parallel parking game, mumbling something like “I think so?” She didn’t argue with me, but kind of said out loud “well at least we know Santa is real and also Leprechauns…” jeez. I see the end of the “game” is coming soon with that one. But back to Carrots. I have not traditionally loved cooked carrots in my life, but occasionally, when made the right way they can kind of worm their way into my heart. Like especially here with this hummus- they wormed away.

The Carrots were roasted for 20 minutes with big cloves of garlic and a little olive oil and salt- and they got tender and all caramelized golden brown. I added them to the garbanzo beans with olive oil and red wine vinegar and it was so creamy I didn’t even have to add tahini. Just pure flavor, not to mention a rather pretty color!

A sprinkle of zaatar spices on top, some olive oil and a few pomegranate seeds and you have a stunning appetizer with an exotic edge- perfect for pre dinner snacking on Easter, don’t you think?


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel carrots and a slice ¼ inch thick then place in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add peeled and crushed garlic.
  4. Add salt, pepper, oil, seeds, and toss together. Lay mixture on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Roast carrots in the oven for 30-40 minutes until al dente. They should be cooked but still have some resistance when poked with a pairing knife. Then allow them to cool to room temperature.
  6. Place roasted carrots and all other ingredients into a food processor.
  7. Pulse ingredients until crushed but still chunky.
