Hi Everyone! Hope that your weeks are going good!
It is no secret that I love my dips, especially hummus so today I thought I would share something a little different with this roasted carrot and parsnip hummus. It is sweet with the root veggies and combined with the traditional hummus taste makes it unique and so delicious! Keep reading for the recipe.

I hope that you have enjoyed this recipe! This hummus would also taste great in a sandwich or on a burger as well. Another thing you could do is thin some out with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and 1/4 cup of water, it would make a great salad dressing for something a little bit different and easy to throw together! This is one of my favorite hummus recipes (along with my caramelized onion hummus) and is a great idea to bring to a party or potluck! I am curious, do you enjoy flavored hummus or are you a traditionalist? If you do like flavored, what is your favorite kind to eat?! Enjoy the rest of your weeks!
