Moroccan Carrot Dip

Moroccan Carrot DipA small barn, no bigger than our kitchen, tables line the walls, a small selection of vegetables sitting atop them.

The Buy Bellarine Produce barn is where we buy our fruit and vegetables once a week. The market is only open on Saturday’s and only supplies locally grown, seasonal produce. We buy only what they have there, and this is all that we eat throughout the week.

Some weeks this means that we might live off a bunch of kale and a pumpkin, others we have an impressive variety.

For some reason, this week we were abound with carrots.

This recipe with an impressive selection of Moroccan spices and a touch of honey, is my perfect after school snack.carrot dip

    1. It does make us very creative! Some times we get stuck with the most unlikely vegetables at the end of the fortnight.

  1. I love how you limit yourself to only buying what you know if of the best quality. And it must make you so much more creative with your cooking too. I love the look of this carrot dip and I can imagine that the carrots are very sweet and full of flavour seeing as they’re organic xx

    1. It’s really lovely to go to the market, to know the producers, and where the food comes from.

  2. Sounds like some really great flavours. I just wish our soil was perfect for growing carrots there is nothing so sweet that you can pull out of the ground. You are really lucky to have a stall that sells local produce. I wish we had more like it up here.

    1. The flavours were delicious! I don’t think our soil is great for carrots either, sadly, but it’s nice to be able to get them fresh and local.

    1. The dip is delicious, and I thought that there’d be too many flavours but they marry perfectly.

  3. I just made a pumpkin soup with very similar flavours and it looked just like that. I made it far too thick. I should have called it a dip instead. Lovely top photo.
