Okay this recipe is so delicious I couldn’t wait to share it with you.
I wasn’t sure if I should call it a dip or a spread. My parents tried this recipe and my father said it’s a spread while my mother said it’s a dip. So, if two people who have lived together for over 30 years can’t decide what this is – then there is no hope for a name here.
But there is hope for FLAVOR and amazing taste in every bite of this carrot medley of goodness.

There’s nothing like sunshine in Manhattan in May and this spread (dip) is just the thing you need to brighten up your day even more.
It’s the perfect condiment to add to anything from my grain-free crackers and grain-free sweet potato flatbread as well as my grain-free parsnip focaccia recipe and my grain-free zucchini pizza crust.
Wow that’s a lot of options- but I think you’ll manage making all of those recipes because you’ll want to make this carrot spread over and over again.
So, you can get creative and spread it onto those crackers, flatbreads and pizza crust or you can add a scoop to salads and oatmeal as well as sandwiches in place of mayo.
Lots of variety here for you…
I created this recipe because I needed more sunshine in my life and I wanted to whip up something bright and fresh and delicious in my food processor so that I could add it to my salads and crackers for snacks and main meals.
Sometimes I get bored with salads and snacks – so I’m constantly plugging in my food processor and whirling a bunch of ingredients together to make some sort of mater piece.
And this is my latest spring-time master piece.
It’s pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself.
I’ve got a pretty good feeling you’re going to fall in love with this sunshine spread.
Just looking at it makes me smile…so bright and happy. Isn’t it?
Who can resist digging into something that makes you smile AND something that’s healthy and good for you?
Surely I can’t, which is why I’m making this again tomorrow for clients who are begging for another batch of this.
So, how are you going to use this spread this week?
Are you going to use it as a dip with raw veggies or serve it atop my crackers, flatbreads and focaccia?

def try as a topping to your buddha bowl!
Amie, does your book contain pictures of each recipe?
Most of them! xox
just bought your book and am looking forward to trying out the recipes. There don’t seem to be any uk suppliers of Chickpea miso not even on Amazon. Will the brown rice miso be ok??
Different taste but yes!
Hi Amie! This ‘dip’ as we’d probably call it in our house to eat with raw veggies looks delish! I can’t wait to try it along with the other recipes and tips from your book which I (finally) just ordered!
I was wondering if you could share a recommendation for an integrative or functional medicine doctor or practice in the NYC area? All that you’ve learned and share is a tremendous help to so many- thank you!
Thanks Erin; yes of course! Check out my Functional Medicine Doctors in New York page. xox
I don’t have miso paste at home and would like to make your recipe. Is there an alternative ?
Sorry that’s all I used. You could try hummus?
