Rad Recipes: Creamy Dreamy Carrot Dip (DF, GF, P, V, VG)

I do love to eat a tasty dip! Even better when it’s healthy AND tastes great, just like my favorite Creamy Dreamy Carrot Dip. This one is Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Paleo-Friendly, Vegetarian and Vegan.   And it still tastes great!  It’s a little sweet, a little spicy, and a whole lotta awesome.

Here’s the super simple recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • One package organic baby carrots
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled & minced
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • 1½- 2  tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ⅛ tsp ground coriander
  • ⅛ tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Using either a veggie steamer or a large covered saute pan, steam the carrots until just soft (but not mushy)
  2. Place the steamed carrots & any remaining liquid in a blender or food processor.
  3. Add olive oil, minced garlic, dry spices, and lemon juice; blend on high until desired creamy texture.
  4. Stir in salt & pepper to taste, then chill before serving.
