Spicy Moroccan Carrot Dip

Can you eat too much hummus?  Last week I found out that, sadly, yes you can.  So, needing a break from my fav dip, and having a costco-sized bag of carrots in the crisper, I thought I’d try something different – and this spicy carrot dip is just perfect for these cool winter days, and serves well with veggies, crackers, or how about some warm flatbread right out of the pan?

Ingredients:

  • 500g carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Preparations:

  1. Steam carrots until tender, drain.
  2. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and whiz until smooth.
  3. Chill, then serve with crackers, veggies, flatbread, or as a spread on sandwiches
