What did one snowman say to the other ??? … Say, do you smell carrots ???


Make a delicious hummus with garbanzo beans and a surprise ingredient: carrots. It’s great to serve with tortilla chips or crudite as a snack or at a party – like maybe a Super Bowl party – or to use as a spread on a sandwich or in a wrap. Look for carrots this week at OBFM from our friends at Mattawoman Creek Farms. Here’s how I make my Carrot Hummus:

Take 10-12 trimmed and washed carrots and rough chop; add to a saucepan and cover with water. Cover and boil for 8-10 minutes until just tender; drain and bring to room temperature.

Add carrots to a food processor with 1 15-ounce can of chickpeas, drained, 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 garlic cloves, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt. Process until mixture is smooth; transfer to a bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro and 1 tablespoon chopped parsley. Cover and chill at least one hour before using.
