There’s nothing like smooth, creamy hummus. It was one of my favorite foods when I was a kid, but chickpeas became too hard for me to digest, so I can’t enjoy them anymore. Luckily, I’ve found ways to make dips inspired by the other ingredients that make hummus so delicious. In this recipe I roast colorful carrots with classic Indian spices and then mix them with tahini, lemon juice and garlic. This Indian Rainbow Carrot Dip from Shivangi Rao is a great dip to pair with gluten-free crackers, grain-free tortillas or fresh, crunchy vegetables.
