Ingredients

  • 500 g chantenay carrots
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 400 g tin chickpeas
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 3 tbs orange juice

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (Gas mark 4/400°F).
  • Wash the carrots and pat dry with kitchen paper. Tip the carrots onto a large baking tray. Add the garlic cloves, leaving them intact in their papery skins.
  • Drizzle over the olive oil and shake the tin to completely coat the carrots and garlic.
  • Pop in the oven to roast for 20-25 minutes until the carrots are golden and cooked through.
  • Once the carrots are ready, take out of the oven and leave to cool.
  • Drain the chickpeas and tip into a blender. Squeeze the cloves of garlic out of their skins and into the blender with the chickpeas. Add the cumin, roasted carrots and orange juice and season to taste. Blend all of the ingredients together until you have a houmous consistency.
  • Garnish with a little coriander (optional) and serve with finger foods for dipping.
  • Once completely cool, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
