Sweet & Spicy Carrot Hummus
« on: January 21, 2018, 01:00:21 am »
This has been my go-to dip lately.  Everyone I have offered it to loves it.
I adapted the recipe from a recipe on a blog called "Bowl of Delicious" and converted it to TMX.
Its nice as a dip, or in wraps with chicken and salad etc.

Sriracha is a popular spicy chilli sauce that can be purchased from most supermarkets.

Sweet & Spicy Carrot Hummus

2 small to medium carrots (approx 150g), roughly chopped
1 clove garlic
1 x 400g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
30mls olive oil
20mls lemon
10mls maple syrup, or more to taste
25mls Sriracha hot sauce, or more or less to taste
1 teaspoon cumin powder
Pinch of salt and pepper
Water

Add carrots and garlic to TMX bowl, chop 5 seconds speed 6
Scrape down sides of bowl
Add all other ingredients except water
Blend 10 seconds speed 8
Scrape down sides of bowl
Add Ĺ to 1 tablespoon of water
Blend 10 seconds speed 8
Scrape down sides of bowl
Taste and adjust if necessary (add whatever you think is needed - more cumin, lemon juice, Sriracha, salt & pepper etc)
Add a tiny bit more water if the consistency is too thick
Blend 10 seconds speed 8
Refrigerate
Garnish with sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and a drizzle of Sriracha

That sounds nice Katie and I have all those ingredients at the moment.  This year Iíve committed to bringing the savoury part of our Probus morning tea so Iím thinking this might be nice for that. Is it very spicy with 25 mls sriracha? 

Iíve never known how to pronounce that ingredient and apparently Iím not  the only one.  Mr Google tells me itís  see-ROTCH-ah

Yes it is spicy Judy. The first time I made it I was a bit scared about the amount of sriracha in the recipe and I only put a tiny bit in. Then I tasted it and added more, tasted it and added more, until I was happy with the level of heat and spice. Perhaps do that, just in case you do think itís too spicy.

Richardís 13 year old nephew loved it and it wasnít too spicy for him.  You might like to add a touch more maple syrup if youíd like it a bit sweeter. Richard complains when savoury food is sweet, so I held back on the sweetness.

I made this today.  I left out the maple syrup, and added a bit more Sriracha. It has quite a kick but we enjoyed it. I didn't tell DH it had chick peas in as he thinks he doesn't like hummus.

Looks nice Cookie.  My DH doesn't like chick peas either although I sometimes slip some in when I am cooking a dish. ;D
