    Easy Carrot & Turmeric Dip

    Easy carrot dip with turmeric

    It could also be called “the quickest dip”, this carrot & turmeric dip. In about 15 minutes you have a delicious and healthy appetizer. It resembles hummus due to tahini, but it does not contain chickpeas, or, any other legume.

    It is ideal for a quick snack for a game, or movie. I think that no matter how many such recipes you have, they are never enough. After all, the variety of flavors is necessary, right?

    Did I tell you that you needs no cooking at all? : D Like I said, the quickest dip!

    We have talked about turmeric many times. I use it a lot in many of my recipes for its countless nutritional benefits, for the color it gives to the final result, etc. You can see some ideas and information here.

    I garnished the carrot & turmeric dip with black sesame seeds and chopped chives, but I also added some chives flowers from my garden. This year they gave me a lot of flowers, and I am very happy for that! Next time I ‘ll have many flowers I will make the chive blossom vinegar by Bille and Helen, aka Mia Kouppa.  🙂

    The original plan was to combine them with homemade chips, but in the end they did not succeed as much as I wanted. I tried another technique for the first time, but I think the way I make chips for so many years is the safest; you can see it here, in an earlier post. You can also serve the carrot dip with veggie sticks, pita chips, grissini, etc.
