Made with 8 simple ingredients this quick and easy Spicy Carrot Sandwich with hummus is full of great flavor!


  • 23 large carrots, coarsely grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds, cumin would be nice too
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • himalayan/mineral salt, to taste
  • four slices bread of choice (french, sourdough, rye or whole grain would pair nicely)
  • hummus to spread
  • cilantro
  • cracked pepper, optional


Saute carrots: In skillet heat oil over medium, add the carrots, garlic, caraway seeds and season with salt and red pepper. Cook until carrots have softened, about 4 minutes. Let cool.

Prep bread: Toast or grill your bread, or leave as is.

Assemble: Layer both sides of bread with hummus (I do both sides because I have hummus love). Add carrot mixture, top with cilantro and season with black pepper.

Serves 2
