26 May Posted by in Foody Friday | Comments

Did you know the beta-carotene and phytonutrients found in carrots help protect against sunburn? Although you might not want to rely on carrot hummus as a foolproof sunscreen alternative, you will absolutely have less of a chance of burning your skin if you eat it on a “sun” day.

Made with just 6 ingredients, this carrot hummus recipe is packed with flavor and nutrients. And the vibrant orange color is beautiful on any party platter!
