I created this spicy carrot spread for my menu collaboration with Kitchit Tonight. It is reminiscent of hummus – and is super easy to make and a great starter for any party.

Spicy Carrot Spread
6 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Harissa
½ teaspoon ground cumin
3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
3 tablespoon Tahini
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Salt and pepper

Set a steamer basket in a saucepan with 2 inches simmering water. Add carrots. Cover and steam until tender, about 12 minutes.
Heat oil in pan and saute until lightly browned.
Transfer carrots, onions, Harissa, cumin, pine nuts, tahini, and lemon juice to a food processor. Season with salt and pepper. Process until smooth, about 1 minute, adding up to 2 tablespoons water if necessary.

Serve with toasted pita bread.
