Makes 8 portions

· 500g carrots πŸ₯•
· 2 tbsp olive oil
· ½ tsp ground cumin
· 1 ½ tbsp honey 🍯
· 1 tin of chickpeas (400g), drained and reserving the liquid
· 4 tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
· 1 small clove of garlic, peeled
· squeeze of lemon juice πŸ‹

Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.

Peel the carrots and cut into thick pieces.

Place in a small roasting tray and toss with the olive oil, cumin and season with a pinch of salt and twist of pepper. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, turning a couple of times.

Drizzle the honey over the carrots and mix around to coat.

Return to the oven for 10 -15 minutes, or until the carrots are tender and becoming golden. Remove and leave to cool to room temperature.

Tip the carrots into a food processor along with the chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon and season with salt and pepper. Blend well until smooth. If the hummus seems a little thick, loosen with some of the reserved liquid.

Taste for seasoning adding more if needed.

Serve with your choice of breadsticks, crackers or veggies to dip. πŸ˜‹
