Author Notes: I had carrot hummus at a restaurant and recreated it. I served it with spiced beef on top as an appetizer. It's gluten free, vegetarian and vegan.

The basic concept here is good but the recipe needs some doctoring. Add the juice of 1 lemon, add more salt, more olive oil and more tahini and you'll be all set.
