A healthy dip that’ll add bright flavor and color to your winter table. Sweet carrots get a boost from a bit of cumin, orange, and garlic, while olive oil gives the mixture a creamy texture.
1 pound carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
2-1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 small garlic clove, roughly chopped
3 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, plus extra to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a medium-size saucepan over high heat, boil carrots in salted water until tender, 15—20 minutes. Drain.
Place carrot, oil, cumin, garlic, and orange juice in the bowl of a food processor, and process until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl.
