    Bombay Orange Roasted Carrot & Tahini Dip

    When roasted, carrots become the perfect texture to blend into a smooth and creamy dip with a hint of sweetness. Paired with nutty tahini and the brightness of Oaktown Spice Shop’s Bombay Orange, this dip is bound to be your new go-to. We love the unique blend of coriander, fennel, and orange zest in this spice blend, and it makes an interesting base for a simple chili oil.
