For Serving

Smoky Roasted Carrot Hummus Naan with Fried Eggs, Arugula, and Beet Tahini recipe
-6 Naan or pitas

-1 Lebanese cucumber, sliced
-Fried eggs (1-2 eggs per person)
-Several handfuls of arugula


Make the carrot hummus: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the sliced carrots on the baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the smoked paprika, cumin, red pepper flakes, a small pinch of salt, and pepper. Toss to coat. Roast for 20 minutes, or until the carrots are fork tender. Place the white beans, lemon juice, tahini, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, garlic, ¾ teaspoon of sea salt, and the roasted carrots in a food processor fitted with the ‘S’ blade. Blend until smooth, adding up to 1/3 cup of water until desired consistency is reached. Transfer into a container.

Make the beet tahini: Place the diced beet in a steamer basket and steam until tender all the way through, 15-20 minutes. Set aside to cool. Once cool, combine the steamed beet, water, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, tahini, Dijon mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper in an upright blender. Blend until smooth and transfer into a jar.

Put it all together: To serve, spread naan or pitas with the carrot hummus. Top with sliced cucumber, fried eggs, beet tahini, and arugula. Enjoy!


-If you have time, I recommend making your own naan. I love this recipe!
-Leftover beet tahini can be stored in the refrigerator for several days. It makes a great salad dressing.
