Oct, 23, 2019

Smoky Carrot Dip? Yes, it’s a thing! This one happens to be a smoky, slightly sweet and seriously savory one. Blended with chickpeas, almonds, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs; it’s the perfect companion to seeded crackers or a loaf. Perfect for a home party!

Also, this recipe is great in that it’s made of ingredients you tend to have lying around—this is a stellar way to use up those carrots that have been sitting to waste in your fridge. 


Ingredients


1/2 cup skin-on almonds

2 lb carrots (trimmed, peeled)

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

2 1/2 tsp kosher salt

2 garlic cloves

1/2 cup canned chickpeas

3 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

3/4 tsp hot smoked Spanish paprika

1 tsp Healthworks Cinnamon Powder 

1/2 cup parsley (chopped)


Instructions


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. 
  2. Toast almonds on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing halfway through, until slightly darkened and fragrant, for around 10 minutes. Let cool; set aside.
  3. Cut the carrots into cubes. Toss on a parchment-lined baking sheet with 2 tbsp love oil and 1 tsp salt.
  4. Spread carrots out evenly on baking sheet and cast, cook until very tender and starting to shrivel and brown, about 45 minutes.
  5. Transfer carrots to a food processor, add garlic, chickpeas, lemon juice, pepper, paprika, parsley, ½ cup oil, 1 ½ tsp salt and reserved almonds
  6. Process, adding more oil if needed, until the mixture is almost completely smooth
  7. Transfer dip to a small bowl, drizzle with more oil and top with parsley
