sharing recipes from one generation to the next
I have a long history of combining peanuts and carrots. In the days when I was making sandwiches on a daily basis for school lunches, peanut butter toppped with coarsely shredded raw carrots was a lunchbox favourite. There was also a carrot cake I used to bake that was topped with sweet lemon cream cheese and crushed peanuts, and a salad of shredded carrot, roasted peanuts, crisp fried breadcrumbs and parsley. In December my interest was piqued when a fellow food blogger Frugal Feeding posted a dip recipe which listed among it ingredients roasted carrots and peanut butter. His recipe looked delicious, but I can’t help myself, having stolen the roasted carrots idea from him, I simply tasted and tweeked until my dip satisfied my palate. The texture ended up more pate than dip.
A pre Christmas drinks party for a crowd was the perfect opportunity for a tryout. It was just right spread on my home made pita crisps.. and by far the most popular snack on the day.
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
2 cloves garlic
1 cup salted roasted peanuts
2 tablespoons peanut oil
Juice of 1 large lemon
Juice of 1 lime
1 1/2 teaspoons sambal oelek
1 teaspoon salt
Good grinding of black pepper
2 spring onions, finely sliced
Preheat the oven to 180C. Wash and dry the carrots, chop them into chunks then toss them in the grapeseed oil. Put the carrots onto an ovenproof tray and roast them until cooked and lightly caramelized, about 45 minutes.
Peel the garlic and put into the jug of your food processor. Pulse the garlic until well chopped.
Add half the peanuts then process them until finely chopped.
Add the carrots, peanut oil, lemon and lime juice. Blitz the dip into a fine but thick purée. Add the remainder of the peanuts and the chilli sambal, pulse to roughly chop the nuts, then add salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the spring onions by hand.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
Make me smile!
