For me, movie night is not complete without a finger-food snack. Dippable treats are my favorite!
I like to get creative with my snacking by making healthy yet delicious dips.
my recipe for Smokey Carrot Dip
5 whole carrots, sliced in half and cut into thirds
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp minced garlic
2 smoked chili peppers
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cracked pepper
4 basil leaves
Place the carrots on a baking sheet and sprinkle with olive oil, roast in the oven at 400F for 20 minutes.
Add carrots and the rest of the ingredients to a blender and puree. Top with dried parsely and a basil leaf. Pair with your favorite bread, cracker or chip. Enjoy it cold and vegan...or for you cheese lovers, top with baby swiss cheese and broil in the oven for 5 minutes. Yum!!
