Juneteenth Carrot Dip with Crudités

This carrot dip recipe is in honor of Food Lab Detroit founder Devita Davison. In Detroit, farmers are super connected to the city; the Eastern Market is one of the oldest farmers' market in the country. This dish is inspired by the farm–city connection, with a little extra citrus flare from our Lemon Olive Oil.


I N G R E D I E N T S :

1 pound carrots with leafy tops

4 cloves garlic, peeled

3 tablespoons Rocky Mountain Olive Oil Lemon Fused Olive Oil

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

15 1/2 ounce can chickpeas, drained

1/4 cup peanut or cashew butter

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • I N S T R U C T I O N S :
    1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

    2. Scrub carrots and rinse off any dirt. Trim tops off and set aside to use in romesco. Place carrots in a large foil pouch, add garlic and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, and season with the salt. Place on a baking sheet and roast until carrots are tender and a knife inserted goes right through, about 40 minutes.

    3. Transfer contents of the foil pouch to a food processor and pulse to chop. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, chickpeas, peanut butter, and lemon juice and puree mixture until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Taste and season with additional salt as needed.

    4. Place carrot dip in a bowl & serve with your crudités of choice.
