Ginger is becoming a favorite ingredient lately. It has such a great flavor. This recipe is unique and looks amazing.
This hummus looks super easy and full of ingredients my family loves. Looking forward to trying soon. Looks VERY tasty!
Carrots and ginger is such a refreshing combination. Brilliant idea to use it in hummus. Lovely colors too. A must try variation for regular hummus.
Stunning color – and such a healthy way to enjoy hummus!
This looks delicious! Thanks for the info about Dorot – we use tons of crushed garlic when we cook, but crushing it myself is one of my least favorite tasks!
This looks so good!!!
