- 0.5 lemon (juice only)
- 1 pinch sea salt and black pepper
- 6 small carrots

Peel and slice the carrots and put them in a baking tray with 1 tbsp of olive oil.

Put the hummus in a bowl and drizzle with the rest of the olive oil and the ras-el-hanout.
- We used cannellini beans because it's what we had in the cupboard, but you can use chickpeas to keep it a more traditional hummus.
- You can use this recipe to make other kinds of vegetable hummus too, like beetroot or courgette.
- Feel free to experiment with flavours in this hummus - you could give it a Mexican twist by using Mexican seasoning.
- Serve the hummus with vegetable sticks and pita bread.
