Ingredients
  • 2 cups chopped carrots (peeled)
  • 1 small onion (chopped into big pieces)
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked white beans (or 1 15 oz can)
  • 1 roasted red pepper (I used jarred, but you can roast a raw pepper with the carrots if you want)
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp gluten-free tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil for roasting (about 1 tbsp)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place carrots and onions on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast vegetables for 20-25 minutes until tender and edges are browned.
  4. In a food processor, place the roasted vegetables and all remaining ingredients. Pulse until nearly smooth. I like this with a little bit of texture, but you can puree it all the way if you prefer.
  5. Serve with crackers, raw vegetables, pita chips, or crusty bread.
Recipe Notes

~This is also delicious as a sandwich spread!
