Little ones love the interactive pleasures of dipping, and this mild carrot puree keeps the wholesome factor high. Serve it with whole-grain bagels or steamed veggies for the younger set, while older kids might enjoy carrot sticks and cucumber slices.
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
Steam the carrots and ginger over boiling water until the carrots are tender, about 10 minutes.
Blend them with the remaining ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
