Carrot-Harissa Hummus

  • ACTIVE: 25 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 2 HRS 25 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 3 1/2 cups
  • VEGETARIAN

Aida Mollenkamp discovered North African food when she arrived in Paris to study at Le Cordon Bleu and ended up living in the Maghreb neighborhood. The experience lent her cooking a French colonial accent. In this vegetable-rich twist on classic hummus, the flavors of a traditional Tunisian carrot salad add sweetness, tang and spice.

Slideshow: Great Party Dips

  1. 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  2. 1 pound carrots, coarsely chopped
  3. 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  4. One 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  5. 1 tablespoon tahini or almond butter
  6. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  8. 2 teaspoons harissa (see Note)
  9. 1 teaspoon honey
  10. Kosher salt
  11. Gluten-free crackers and assorted vegetables, for dipping
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the broth to a boil. Add the carrots and garlic and simmer over moderate heat until the carrots are tender, about 12 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the carrots to a food processor. Add the chickpeas and half of the carrot cooking liquid to the food processor and puree until smooth. Add the tahini and olive oil and pulse until incorporated. Scrape into a bowl and stir in the lemon juice, harissa and honey and season with salt. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours. Serve with the crackers and crudités.
Make Ahead

The hummus can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Notes

Harissa, a fiery North African spice paste, is available at specialty food stores and online at lepicerie.com.
