It seems like hummus has gotten incredibly popular in the past few years. Every time I go to the grocery store I spot a new flavor. But I’ll be honest, unless it’s freshly made, I’m not the biggest hummus fan. But I do love the flavor of roasted carrots and I love pesto so I took key ingredients from those and other dishes and came up with a dip of my own!

My favorite thing to pair this dip with is a sharp cheddar and the fig and rosemary crackers from Trader Joe’s make it the perfect accompaniment to a truly Insta-worthy cheeseboard. Give it a try fr yourself and let me know what you think!

Roasted Carrot Curry Dip

Do you like carrots? Do you like hummus? This is the perfect combo for you and an easy healthy dip for any occasion. Sometimes I add it to my charcuterie boards for a little different flavor profile or just serve it with chips for a quick snack.
