We had to have this dip recipe from Ochre Bakery in Detroit, No. 4 on our 2019 Hot Ten list. Sweet and smoky roasted carrots are blended with chickpeas, almonds, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs. It’s the perfect companion to seeded crackers or good bread. Make sure the carrots are tender to their core before you pull them from the oven for the smoothest possible texture.
If your Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving without a craggy-topped, herb-infused, crusty-bread-based stuffing, this one's for you. Better yet, make two: A dish of stuffing at each end of the table will help ease the traffic jam. This also maximizes those primo corner scoops.
