  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 250g baby carrots
  • 1 pot of parsley


  1. Put the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil and tahini into a food processor and blitz to a smooth consistency. Loosen with 1–2 tbsp water if it seems a little thick. 

  2. Make a hole in the top of each carrot with a skewer or by cutting a small hole with the tip of a sharp knife. Dab a small amount of hummus into the hole and push in a small sprig of parsley. 

  3. Spoon the hummus into thoroughly cleaned small, plant pots or bowls and push in the carrots. Let the children dunk into the hummus with the carrots.
