• 25 medium carrots
  • 1 head green garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (divided)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons ground sumac
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/4 cup tahini

  2. Coat the carrots and garlic in honey, half of the olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  3. Spread evenly on a parchment coated baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes. Carrots should be very soft and caramelized.
  4. Let carrots cool a bit and add to a food processor with all other ingredients.

  6. Serve chilled with crudité, fresh bread, and a drizzle of olive oil.
