Recipe by KateL

Entered for safe-keeping, from Clean Eating, Fall 2008. Should be a great spread, maybe even a dip, for raw vegetables or whole wheat crackers. Can't wait to try this.

This was made into a sandwich filling/Arabic bread and was delicious with spinach leaves and arugula. Luckily, we received a few organic sweet potatoes (orange flesh) in our CSA box and I only made a half portion. Topped with fresh cilantro, I added red onion and the water used to cook the sweet potatoes was the same water used to cook the onion and carrot. Homemade tahini and homemade roasted curry powder. Drained off most of the carrot/onion cooking liquid and used some of the liquid to help blend the mixture. Reviewed for Veg Tag/July.
