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.

Serve on top of the hummus.
