Purple Carrot Hummus with Traditional Falafel & Beef Kibbeh
Looking for a nontraditional or alternative hummus? Look no further! We think you’re going to love this new twist on hummus that brightens your table with a gorgeous lavender color. Our purple carrot recipe gives an extra peppery sweetness and a boost of antioxidants to an already popular dip. Hummus always works in great complement to Afia products and pictured here we have Kibbeh and Traditional Falafel paired with a stunning purple hummus. As an alternative, you can keep this as a vegan recipe by simply leaving off the Kibbeh. And of course, any color of carrot will work if you don’t have purple on hand.
