Hummus and baba ganoush aren't the only two pureed Middle Eastern dips out there - caramelized carrots provide a sweet base for this dip, while Vanns Cumin, Coriander, and Harissa add earthy depth and spice.
This dip takes advantage of the natural sugars in carrots by allowing them to caramelize at the end of the cooking process. Once the carrots are cooked, all you have to do is toss them in the food processor along with the rest of the ingredients! This is a dip that shines as an appetizer or as part of a mezze spread - leftovers can also be spread on sandwiches in place of hummus.
