This dip gets it’s substance and creaminess from the carrots, beans, and cashews which also provides some serious nutrition. Full of antioxidants, protein, fiber and healthy fats – this sandwich spread is sure to make one satisfying sandwich.

Feel free to adjust the Sriracha to your spicy preference. This recipe is pretty mild as is so add more if you like it spicy. I’m a spice wimp since birthing Sloane – she literately stole ALL my spiciness from me – and I don’t think this is very spicy at all.

As the pictures suggest, this also makes a stellar dip. Nothing is worse than dipping a carrot into ranch and having it all slide off or down your face. Dip away in this spread and you’ll get a solid dip to veggie ratio in return. You might even forget there’s a vegetable there.

If you’re really on your game, roast some extra carrots at dinner one night. Save 1 cup in the refrigerator until you are ready to make your spread. And, enjoy!

How-to-Use

Athletes: Slather this on your egg sandwiches in the morning to fuel up your morning right. Get your protein, carbs, veggies with a side of flavor!

Healthy Eating: Not only is this delicious as a sandwich spread, but it’s also delicious as a veggie dip. It’s super thick – so a nice change from hummus or ranch that won’t stick to your veggies.

Kids: Put a thin layer on their grilled cheese and look at that! Veggies in their dinner! Watch the amount of sriracha you add if your little one is sensitive to heat.
