  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons Simply Organic® Harissa Seasoning
  • 3/4 pound (about 4 medium-size) carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 can (15.5 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea or pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup carrot juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons hazelnuts, toasted and chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon harissa seasoning. Toss carrots in mixture.
  3. Arrange carrots in a single layer on prepared baking sheet and roast for 30 to 35 minutes, until completely soft, stirring halfway through.
  4. Transfer carrots to a food processor. Add chickpeas, garlic, salt, and remaining tablespoon harissa seasoning. Pulse about 5 pulses, until chopped.
  5. Add tahini and process 1 minute. With processor running, stream in remaining tablespoon olive oil, carrot juice and lemon juice, then process until smooth. Serve topped with chopped hazelnuts and a sprinkle of parsley.
Recipe Tip:
  1. If you can’t find (or don’t want to use) carrot juice, use water or low-sodium vegetable broth instead. If you do buy carrot juice, enjoy the remaining juice in smoothies, soups and even cocktails.
