Recipe: Smoky Carrot Tahini Dip

December 7, 2018

The other day I was musing about creating a delicious, unusual, flavorful vegan dip that would be gluten-free, soy-free and nut-free! I have a table at a health and wellness fair this weekend and wanted something special for folks to sample that would appeal to anyone with food restrictions or intolerances.

This carrot dip more than fits the bill, and it's SO damn tasty and bursting with complex flavors yet is a breeze to make. All you need is a saucepan and a blender/magic bullet and you are all set!

 

The creaminess comes from the tahini rather than soaked cashews or dairy, and the smokiness comes from the paprika and cumin! Maple syrup adds to the umami, and lemon brings just the right amount of acid. This would be perfect at a holiday party to add something completely different that will wow your guests!

 

I would love to know how you like it! Drop me a note or comment here or on my Facebook page or Instagram. Much love, xo Zarya
