This recipe is a fun twist on the traditional hummus dip. The smokey flavor is a wonderful complement to the sweetness of the carrots. As with most of the recipes I share, it is also quick and easy to make. For my tastes, I prefer a thicker dip and use chickpeas, but really any light colored bean will do, e.g. pinto beans or cannellini beans. With pinto or cannellini beans the dip will be a little thinner, which can make it more ideal for use as a sauce instead of a dip.
Roasted garlic is a must for this recipe to come together, but the onions can be kept out if you like. I also love to roast the carrots and onions along with the garlic, but you can of course steam the carrots and onions. This dip pairs well with green peppers and cucumbers but my favorite way to enjoy is as a topping on homemade bread, fresh out of the bread maker!
