Roasted Heirloom Carrots with Black Garlic Hummus
Black garlic hummus:
1 large can of chick peas (save 1 cup of chick pea juice from can)
6 cloves of black garlic
10 cloves of roasted garlic
1 tbl spoon of tahini
Juice from 1 lemon
Steam chick peas for 10 minutes in a perforated pan.
Add all ingredients into blender and puree until smooth.
Add chick pea juice to thin out hummus.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cumin and honey roasted carrots:
Toss carrots in honey, cumin and oil to taste.
Roast in oven at 350 degrees F until tender approx. 8-10 minutes. You want the carrots to still have a little crunch to them.
