Roast Carrot Hummus






Cooper can be tempted to have a little of this, but he still isn't sure of hummus in general. I will keep trying and me, well I think this is rather delicious!

Try it on oatcakes, spread it on a wrap with falafel and salad or try it on a sandwich with crunchy cucumber.

  1. sylvia seems to be enjoying hummus again - she goes on and off it - at the moment she loves it most if she has a little knife to spread it on bread or bikkies - I have made some with carrot and can't remember if she liked it - I should buy her some oatcakes - they aren't so popular here but she loves oats
