      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!
