    Mikekey's Note:

    This is a traditional Tunisian recipe for a classic salad of cooked carrots and potatoes that are mashed and mixed with garlic, cumin, olive oil, white wine vinegar and cayenne pepper. This dish looks more like a carrot purée that you would serve as side, but in Tunisia it is served as a starter.

      This unusual concoction could be considered a Tunisian hummus it was that good. Never expected to enjoy this mixture but made a very tasty side dish (I know this is a salad served at the beginning of the meal). Very thick and creamy and probably designed to help fill the belly when the meal is not very much, as it is in many parts of the world.
