Orange (Carrot) Hummus

IMG_7601

I have been doing a lot of meringue experimentation. Therefore, I have a lot of cooked beans! Today I wanted to do a twist on my basic hummus so I steamed some carrots and voila, orange hummus, as I like to call it. Flavored with cumin, it is a really nice variation.

* I have also made this recipe with cannellini beans but the texture is a bit smoother. Just as good!

2 medium sized carrots
1 cup cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup hot bean water (or the carrot steaming water)
1 clove of garlic
The juice of 1/2 lemon
1 heaping tablespoon tahini
1 teaspoon cumin
Pinch of salt
Paprika, for garnish

Cut the carrots into pieces and steam until just soft. Let cool for a few minutes.

Place all ingredients into the Vitamix or processor. Process until smooth.

Enjoy!
