This dip is full of anti-inflammatory ingredients that help combat arthritis pain.
Preheat oven to 375° Toss carrots and crushed garlic in 1-1/2 teaspoons of olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Cook in oven until the carrots become tender and slightly browned, about 45 minutes to one hour.
Remove from oven and place roasted carrots and garlic in a food processor along with the remaining ingredients. Process until smooth. Alternatively, the ingredients can be pureed using a hand immersion blender. If mixture is tight or dry, add a few more drops of orange juice to loosen it to your desired dipping consistency.
Place mixture in a chip and dip platter bowl and serve dip warm or cold. Surround dip bowl with healthy type chips and garnish (optional) with a carrot curl and a dehydrated or fresh orange slice and a sprinkling of tarragon.
