Can you eat too much hummus?  Last week I found out that, sadly, yes you can.  So, needing a break from my fav dip, and having a costco-sized bag of carrots in the crisper, I thought I’d try something different – and this spicy carrot dip is just perfect for these cool winter days, and serves well with veggies, crackers, or how about some warm flatbread right out of the pan?


  • 500g carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Steam carrots until tender, drain.
  2. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and whiz until smooth.
  3. Chill, then serve with crackers, veggies, flatbread, or as a spread on sandwiches
