This was delicious! I made it for a party so I left out the olives, in case some people didn't like them, and I subbed dried cilantro because i didn't have fresh. It was gone quickly! Incidentally, I make my own baby food and could never get my youngest to like carrots as the older too did....On a whim, I gave hime some of this while I was prepping for the party...he sucked it down. I'm making a DOUBLE batch today!

My friends and I formed a supper club and we cook a different country or regional cuisine each month. This month was Moroccan and I made the carrot dip as an appetizer. It's absolutely delicious, easy to make, tastes exotic, and smells and looks beautiful. Wonderful!

I made this last night for a food day at the office today and it nearly didn't make it to work at all! I think I could live on this! I made the recipe mostly as written (skipped the olives and cilantro and garnished with a liberal sprinkling of za'atar). This is really good (who knew carrots could taste so fluffy?!) and very mildly spiced (for my pickier, non-spice-consuming coworkers). This is great as a dip, but I think it'd make a lovely sandwich spread too (and I'm pretty sure I'll be marinating tofu in the spice/honey/lemon combo. Very nicely balanced flavors, very versatile! Thanks!

Sweet and spicy at the same time. Nice. Different.

Very nice, tasty dip. Good for you too. It's great with grilled pita or Wasa crackers. I love it sprinkled with cilantro, green onions, or z 'atar spice. I think it tastes best at room temperature.

When I made this for my family's get together everyone absolutely loved it, but I felt it was missing something but just couldn't figure out what.

Wow. Usually I do not like cooked carrots, but this recipe intrigued me. I made a few changes: I added the spices in step two, increased the cumin, and eliminated the honey. Thank you for giving me a new twist on an old veggie.

I made this for a party I was having with two other dips and this was by far the star. My friends who arrived at the party first were practically fighting over it! I left out the olives because I thought there were enough flavors already. It tasted much better than I thought it would and I can't wait to make it again.

Excellent! I served it with Moroccan Ksra-Bread. I roasted the carrots, as suggested in another recipe, used palm sugar instead of honey as I prefer it, and omitted olives because I didn't have them.
