Carrot Noodles with Hummus

Carrots are great to use for many ways in food. I love carrots, consuming them about 7 kg per week. I eat almost everyday carrot in a food or in juice. Carrots are ideal for boosting the immune system. They contain a number of antiseptic and antibacterial abilities. Carrots are rich source of vitamin C, which stimulates the activity of white blood cells.

The health benefits of carrots;

  • lower cholesterol
  • prevention from heart attacks
  • warding off of certain cancers
  • improve vision
  • reduce the signs of premature aging
  • increase the health of your skin
  • boost the immune system
  • improve digestion
  • increase cardiovascular health
  • detoxify the body
  • boost oral health in a variety of ways

I wanted to make hummus with self-made tahini  but it didn´t worked out as I wanted, I put too much olive oil. Fortunately, there was purchased tahini in my fridge which saved my hummus.
