This delicious Healthy Roasted Chickpea with Carrot Hummus is perfect for mindless munching, but with none of the guilt. 

Roasted Chickpea and Carrot Hummus

Here we are, well into January 2016, and this is the first healthy recipe I’m sharing with you. What the heck took me so long? I’m not sure actually, but better late than never. Right?

Chickpea Hummus with Carrots

Hummus is something that I really enjoy eating, and there are plenty of good brands on the market that I love, and purchase frequently. However, making hummus at home couldn’t be easier, and when doing so you can tailor it to your own tastes and dietary restrictions, as needed. Plus it’s great fun!

What gives this hummus that little extra something that you don’t normally get when purchasing store bought hummus is the extra depth of flavor that roasting the chickpeas and carrots provides. It’s thirty minutes well spent, and one that makes all the difference.
