A surprising amount of foods can be turned into dips. Spice up your dip game, literally, with this simple moroccan inspired carrot dip. At a party I was obsessed with an orange dip, but I had no idea what I was eating. I asked the host and was so surprised to find out it was made out of carrots (especially because I had been dipping carrots in it all evening).

I set out to find the perfect recipe for an easy moroccan carrot dip and this was the result. Smooth and full of spices this dip is  a great way to improve your party hosting game. Added bonus, its vegan.
