Roasted Carrot Hummus Video

Both of my kids are back in school and that means I'm full on back to making school lunch. I've been letting Kenya and Chloe flip through Weelicious Lunches to pick out which recipes they are most excited about so it's easier for me to predict what they'll want to eat in the future. One of the recipes they both requested was my Roasted Carrot Hummus.

Hummus is a lifesaver, especially for kids and adults who favor a vegetarian diet. Packed with beans, this dip (which works equally well as a sandwich spread) is protein rich. If you've only had classic hummus, you should definitely try this variation which gets its incredibly deep flavor from the caramelized roast carrots. Even my husband is addicted to it! This quick video will show you just how easy it is to make.

    What kind of peanut butter do you use. I noticed it was very runny.

    Is this recipe on your website? I could not find it. It sounds like something my kids would love and I am not good at winging quantities. Thanks!

    What could you sub for the peanut butter if you have allergies?

    Roasted carrot hummus sounds wonderful. My kids don't like regular hummus so I'd love to try the roasted carrot version of it for them. I get that you want to boost sales of your cookbook but if a recipe isn't available on the weelicious website, I, personally, would prefer you not post anything about it here. I find it frustrating that I'm unable to get measurements for something you recommend here. Thank you.

    Catherine,

    I am waiting for my new book to arrive from Amazon so I can try this recipe! It looks fantastic! Thanks for all the years of freebies on your website that made me look like a super mom and great cook. Can't wait to make this over the weekend for the kiddos when my book comes!

    Warmly,
    A huge fan

    What would you recommend to use instead of peanut butter? Most schools require nut-free lunches and snacks.
    Thanks :)

    Thank you for your continued effort in developing and sharing such wonderful recipes. My three boys and I enjoy your cookbooks, videos and emails highlighting new recipes! I am curious if wow butter (soy based non peanut alternative) would fair well as a substitute?

    Kind regards,
    Ashley & the boys

    I am holding out my book orders until the kids Book Fair this Fall. So, I made a version of this recipe - which is to say I used leftover steamed carrots and estimated the measurements. It's pretty tasty! I used Natural almond butter and sill needed a drizzle of olive oil to get the smooth texture, I think the roasted carrots would bring a richer flavor. I will definitely make this recipe again. great heslthly football Saturday snack.
