Ingredients

  • 2 medium to large carrots, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger*
  • 1/4 cup dried apricots
  • 1 (13-15 oz.) can white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup tahini (ground sesame seed)**
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • ¼ cup Sriracha hot sauce (or more or less, depending on spicy preference)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons water

Instructions

  • In a food processor or blender, add the carrots, garlic, ginger and apricots and blend until finely minced.
  • Add the remaining ingredients except for water, and blend until smooth.
  • Add one tablespoon of water at a time until hummus reaches desired consistency.
  • Transfer to serving bowl and garnish with additional sriracha sauce, sesame seeds and poppy seeds, if desired. Enjoy with your favorite chip, cracker, or bread or use as a spread or salad topping.

Notes

*For fresh ginger, I like to use Dorot Gardens frozen herb cubes, found in the freezer section of your grocery store. You can also substitute the fresh ginger with 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger.
**Tahini is found in most all grocery stores, Target and Walmart. It is typically located near peanut and almond butter.
