  • 1 lb. fresh carrots
  • 1/4 oz. extra virgin olive oil, Tuscan, unrefined
  • 1 tbsp. sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt, coarse
  • 1 tsp. fresh garlic
  • 3/4 cup all natural plain yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 lemon, medium sized


Preheat oven to 425°. On a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet, toss carrots with 2 tbsp. of the oil, sweet chili and a generous pinch or two of salt; spread in an even layer. Roast, tossing once, until carrots are tender and beginning to caramelize, 20 to 25 minutes. Let carrots cool slightly on baking sheet.

Transfer carrots with their oil to a food processor. Add a pinch of salt, the garlic, yogurt, vinegar, and remaining 2 tbsp. oil. Purée until very smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed, about 4 minutes. Taste and add more salt and a squeeze of lemon as needed to balance the carrots’ sweetness.
