What you'll need

  • 2 medium-size carrots, sliced
  • 1/2-inch piece ginger, sliced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (see tip below)
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey or sugar
Helpful Tip:

Don't have kosher salt? Substitute table salt; just use half the recommended amount.

How to make it

  1. Steam the carrots and ginger over boiling water until the carrots are tender, about 10 minutes.

  2. Blend them with the remaining ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
