Since I have being doing the Low FODMAP diet I have been missing hummus and I was seeking out an alternative when I came across this recipe by a fellow blogger Frugal Feeding here
It’s definitely worth a look, however I decided to try to de-FODMAP it somewhat so it could be used by those people who want to follow a low FODMAP diet.
600g bag of carrot batons
1 tablespoon of garlic infused olive oil
1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon of chilli power (optional)
1 teaspoon of fennel seeds
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Sprinkling of asafoetida*
300ml of water
Salt + pepper
Add the carrots to a baking tray and sprinkle with olive oil, crushed cumin seeds, chilli, aesofotida and fennel seeds and roast in a hot oven till soft.
Remove from the oven and add the juice of 1/2 lemon, salt + pepper and water and blend till amalgamated.
With much thanks to frugal feeding!
Suitable for low FODMAP, lactose & fructose intolerance (count in your fruit intake – lemon juice – if you have a large portion,) gluten free(*check for gluten!) and vegan diets.
