In a covered small saucepan, cook one cup of chopped carrots in boiling water for 6 to 8 minutes, then drain. Then, combine the carrots, one fifteen-ounce can of garbanzo beans, 1/4 cup tahini, 2 tsp lemon juice, 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, and 1/4 tsp salt in your food processor. Blend until your mixture is smooth, then transfer to a serving bowl and stir in 2 tsp of fresh parsley.

Cover and chill your hummus for at least one hour.  Just stir in a little water, one tablespoon at a time, if it's too thick. Serve it with assorted dippers, like carrots, broccoli, peppers, or pita chips. Or combine all of them into a delicious hummus platter.
