  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 Yellow onion, diced
  • Cinnamon, to taste
  • Cumin, to taste
  • Sumac, to taste (optional)
  • 1 lb Carrots, chopped into rounds
  • 1 Orange, juiced and zested
  • 1 inch piece Ginger, minced
  • 1/2 bunch Parsley, chopped
  • 1 handful Toasted nuts, hazelnuts or walnuts
  • Aleppo pepper flakes, or red pepper flakes
  • Harissa, or tomato paste for a mild dip


  1. Add olive oil to a pan over medium heat.
  2. Once hot, add the onion and sauté until it begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Then add the cinnamon, cumin and sumac to the pan and sauté for another 3 – 5 minutes.
  3. Add the carrots to the pan and cook until softened, 15 – 20 minutes. Once soft, set aside to cool.
  4. Transfer the cooked ingredients to a food processor or blender. Add the orange juice and zest, parsley, nuts, crushed pepper and harissa, as well as additional cinnamon, cumin and sumac to taste. Add a drizzle or so more of olive oil for texture, then pulse and purée until the dip is evenly combined and spreadable.
  5. Top with parsley and chopped nuts and serve with crudité, crackers or fresh bread.
