Spicy Carrot Hummus

Spicy Carrot Hummus

This week I made a batch of delicious Spicy Carrot Hummus and wanted to share my simple recipe with you.

Hummus is so easy to make if you have a food processor or blender and I whipped this up in our Breville Boss to Go Plus.

I ended up making double the recipe so that I could convert half of it into a soup – read on for both recipes.

I blended in 2 batches – carrots first, then the other ingredients second and mixed the two in a huge bowl.

The finished hummus was so tasty with just the right amount of spicy kick to it.

I had it for lunch two days in a row with sliced cucumbers and red capsicum.

I could have frozen the rest for the following week but decided instead to make a soup out of it.

I put the remaining hummus into a pan on the stove, added about 300ml of vegetable stock and 2 tablespoons of tomato paste and stirred it altogether.

I added pepper to taste and it made the most delicious Spicy Carrot and Chickpea Soup – YUM!
