This carrot hummus recipe is made with white beans and curcumin that blends into a velvety anti-inflammatory carrot hummus that is perfectly spiced with cumin and smoked paprika.
The carrot white bean hummus can be used as a dip for vegetables such as cucumber, red pepper, and celery or served with brown rice crackers that can be enjoyed at any dinner party, beach potluck or as a healthy gluten-free snack. You can also spice up any wrap or sandwich with this carrot hummus recipe.
I wanted to try making a carrot hummus recipe without chickpeas but still wanted something to complement the carrots so for the first time I tried using white beans to make this carrot hummus and I am so glad I did. The addition of white beans makes this carrot hummus recipe so smooth and creamy and is easily blended using an immersion blender (my most used kitchen utensil) but the white bean carrot hummus can easily be made in a food processor as well.
I am a bit of a whole food nutrition junkie, to say the least, so I cook my white beans from scratch by first soaking the white beans for 8 hours then using a pressure cooker to cook the beans to make them more easily digested by the body by releasing enzyme inhibitors, but you can also use a store-bought can of white beans as well to save the time and preparation of cooking the beans from scratch

To make this carrot hummus recipe start by chopping 2 cups of carrots into rounds then place in a pot with water and bring to a boil for 30 mins or until the carrots are nice and tender. Strain the water when the carrots are done then place the carrots into a blending jug and measure out the remainder of the ingredients.
