500g organic carrots
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika (smoked if you have it)
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 chopped spring onions (green part only)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp apple balsamic (or other good sharp vinegar)
Salt to taste
Roughly chop the carrots and put in a pan (there is no need to peel them if you have organic ones). Cover with boiling water and simmer for about 20 minutes or until tender. Drain the carrots and leave in the sieve.
Heat the oil in the pan and add the spring onions, cooked carrots and spices. Cook on a gentle heat for a couple of minutes.
Remove from heat and add vinegar. Puree with a hand blender (or if you prefer you can mash by hand but the texture will be less smooth) until just blended.
Season to taste.
