You’ll absolutely love this easy Gluten Free Hummus with Roasted Carrots from the very first dip. This hummus recipe has a ton of flavor with notes of savory chipotle. It’s also vegan, dairy free and can be made without oil or tahini!

I make this Healthy Hummus Recipe for my family at least once a week! During the week we’re all so busy running from activity to activity that sometimes there isn’t time to make dinner. Or I just don’t want to.

So for a quick filling meal I’ll put a heaping amount of hummus into a gluten free Siete Wrap and GO. Since it stays fresh for 8 days it’s I like to make it for a party and then save the leftovers for weekday meals.

Why I Love Gluten Free Hummus Without Tahini

Who doesn’t love hummus? It is one of the most satisfying dips around. I’ve never met someone who didn’t like it. Traditional hummus can be hard to digest even though it’s gluten free because it’s a bit heavy. Many of my clients with IBS have trouble digesting hummus.

I love finding new ways to lighten up hummus while making it more flavorful. That’s why I came up with this carrot hummus recipe. It’s also light because it doesn’t have tahini. Making it nut free and much lighter than traditional hummus. My clients and I have no trouble digesting this version.

The roasted carrots make the recipe lighter and easier to digest without sacrificing flavor. This recipe is:

  • Gluten Free
  • Vegan
  • Dairy Free
  • Plant Based
  • Nut Free

Substitutions For Gluten Free Roasted Carrot Hummus

Peruvian Spice Blend – If you don’t have time to make the Peruvian Spice Blend or buy it ahead of time you can substitute Your favorite taco seasoning. Or just use 1.5 tsp smoked paprika and 1.5 tsp cumin.

Mellow White Miso Paste – If you’re avoiding soy products you can use a chickpea miso instead. Or leave it out entirely! Just add an extra 1/4 tsp of salt.

Olive Oil – If you’re avoiding oil you can use ghee or unsalted butter to roast the carrots instead.

Water – Instead of water you can save the aquafaba and use that instead. Aquafaba is the flavorful liquid inside the can of chickpeas.

Hummus Variations

Tips for Making Perfect the Gluten Free Hummus

  1. For thicker hummus wash the chickpeas and pat them dry.
  2. If you want creamier hummus save the water from the chickpeas called (Aquafaba) and use it instead of water. If you want to use aquafaba you must use canned chickpeas!
  3. Use an off set spatula to scrape down the sides of the food processor in-between blending to ensure an even pure.
  4. Watch the carrots while they cook and make sure they don’t burn. If the do burn, peel off the blackened parts. If you use the burnt pieces your hummus will have a bitter burnt aftertaste.
  5. Blend in the food processor for 4 minutes. It does seem like a long time but that’s what it takes to get perfectly creamy hummus!
