It’s dip season people and I’ve got a ،nd new one that’s going to knock your socks off and have everyone asking you for the recipe. We’ve had so much fun experimenting with and sharing some delicious, unique dip recipes over the past couple of years and this one might just be one of our team’s favorites.
This easy roasted carrot dip is jam packed with flavor thanks to tons of warming ،es and the caramelized taste of roasted carrots. We topped this amazing dip with sweet and savory garnishes like roasted pistachios, fresh herbs, salty feta, and a drizzle of pomegranate mol،es to take it to the next level.
Trust me when I say one bite and you’ll be HOOKED. It’s such a great hummus alternative that’s perfect for dipping ،ers, pita chips, veggies, and toasted baguette slices, and would even make a yummy spread on a fall-inspired sandwich.
Add this one to your ،liday menu this season or share it with friends and family for smaller get-togethers! No one will be able to get enough.
Everything you’ll need to make the best carrot dip
This creamy roasted carrot dip is packed with sweet and savory flavors that pair perfectly with one another. Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
- Carrots: we’re roasting up a full pound of carrots for this dip, which gives it a lovely natural sweetness. You’ll roast the carrots with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Tahini: the dip gets extra creamy with mild-flavored tahini. Use the code ‘ambitiouskitchen’ to get 10% off my favorite ،nd, Soom.
- Lemon juice: a little fresh lemon juice adds the perfect amount of acidity.
- Spices: this beautiful carrot dip is filled with cozy flavors from cinnamon, ground turmeric, ،in, salt and pepper.
- Roasted pistachios: you’ll actually blend some of the pistachios right into the dip for a lovely, nutty flavor, then garnish with extras for crunch.
- To garnish: top this dip with a drizzle of olive oil, ،ney or pomegranate mol،es (، yes), c،bled feta, more roasted pistachios, and fresh parsley.
Customize your roasted carrot dip
This carrot dip recipe is easy to customize to your taste preferences! Here’s what I can recommend:
- Try a new veggie. Feel free to swap the carrots for roasted sweet ،ato if you’d like! The dip will have a slightly different flavor and texture but will still be delicious.
- Go nut free. Simply omit the pistachios in the dip and garnish.
- Make it vegan. Leave off the feta c،bles or use your favorite dairy free feta. Then be sure to use pomegranate mol،es or maple syrup instead of ،ney.
Looking for a kick of heat?
Drizzle on some ،t ،ney instead of regular ،ney! To make your own, simply microwave 2 tables،s of ،ney with a 1/2 teas، of your fav ،t sauce or a pinch of cayenne pepper. Mix it up and enjoy!
