Carrot Cashew Spread

Serves 8
Time 1 hr 25 min
This spread is equally good with whole grain crackers or as a quick breakfast when spread on toasted slices of whole grain bread.
Ingredients
  • 3 carrots roughly chopped
  • 1 cup raw cashew or walnut pieces divided
  • 15 dried apricots quartered (about 1/2 cup)
Method

Put carrots into a small pot and cover by 2 inches with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Add 3/4 cup cashews and apricots, cover and continue to simmer until carrots are very soft, 5 to 7 minutes more; reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water, and then drain well. Transfer carrot mixture and reserved water to a food processor and purée until smooth. Chill for at least 1 hour, then garnish with remaining cashews and serve.
