Ingredients

  • 2 medium carrots peeled and cubed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup chickpeas cooked
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • pinch of cumin
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt + pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the peeled, cubed carrots and the garlic cloves in aluminum foil, wrap it and bring it to the oven for about 45 minutes. This is a good time to catch up on the laundry :) Oven temperatures may vary, so don't worry about overcooking it or undercooking it. It just need to soften enough so it's easier to blend.
  • Remove the carrots and garlic from the oven and let it cool off completely.
  • Add all the ingredients to the food processor (I used a Vitamix) and blend. Different appliances will require more or less time. For me, using a Vitamix, it took a total of approximately 2 minutes of blending, stopping a few times to bring the ingredients together. If you need to adjuster the texture feel free to add more oil or water, as long as you reach a smooth consistency paste like, you are good to go.
