Did you know that a plant-based diet has the potential to significantly decrease diet-related land use and greenhouse gas emissions? Plus, with our Pulp Pantry BONUS, you can fight food waste and make use of commonly discarded veggies from your fridge. Let's dive into the details of our Creamy Wilted Carrot Dip – a delightful way to repurpose slightly wilted carrots into a tasty and refreshing snack.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup wilted carrots, chopped

  • 1/2 cup vegan Greek yogurt (we love Kite Hill!)

  • 2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise (we love Follow Your Heart)

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon cumin for added depth

Instructions:

  1. Begin by wilting the carrots. Sauté chopped carrots in a pan with a bit of olive oil over medium heat until they are soft and slightly caramelized. Allow them to cool.

  2. In a blender or food processor, combine the wilted carrots, Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, minced garlic, lemon juice, and fresh dill.

  3. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Adjust the consistency by adding a little water if the dip is too thick.

  4. Season the dip with salt and pepper to taste. For an extra layer of flavor, add a pinch of cumin.

  5. Transfer the dip to a serving bowl and elevate the presentation with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of fresh dill.

  6. Chill the dip in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.

  7. The perfect pairing for this creamy creation? Pulp Chips, of course!
