Recipe Detail Carrot Pate

Carrot Pate

2 c Carrots; sliced 1/4 c Onions; diced
1 ea Garlic clove; slivered 1/4 ts Dill 2 tb Olive oil
1/2 c -Water 1 tb Arrowroot; dissolved in 1 tb -Water 2 tb White miso 1/4 ts Sea salt 2 tb Tahini; optional "For this recipe you may use a food processor instead of a blender to puree the carrots. Mash the carrots roughly before pureeing them. You might need to add a little extra water; in which case, simmer the pureed, flavored carrots for a little while longer. The pare should not feel wet. The additional of two tablespoon s of tahini will make the pate taste richer and help hold the ingredients together." In a medium saucepan, saute the carrots, onions, garlic and dill in the oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the water, cover, and simmer until the carrots are tender (about 20 minutes). Puree until a smooth paste and return saucepan. Combine the dissolved arrowroot, miso, salt and tahini, if you wish. Add this mixture pureed carrots. Bring to a slow simmer, stirring constantly and cook until the pate detaches itself from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat, turn the pate mixture out onto a lightly oiled serving dish and let cool. Serve the pate with crackers or toast, or serve it as a dip with crisp, raw vegetables.
