1 litre olive oil for frying
- Peel and roughly chop carrots. Place in a perforated steam container and Steam at 100°C for 1 hour 30 minutes.

- Remove the cooked carrot from the Steam Oven and blend in a food processor along with garlic, tahini paste, lemon juice, miso and vinegar until smooth, season to taste with salt and lemon juice.
- While processing, add the olive oil slowly to emulsify and finish the dip.
- Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with chips and a cocktail.
Hints and tips
- The chips will stay crisp in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
- Leftover salt can be used to season any seafood.
- The dip will keep for up to one week in the refrigerator.
- Potatoes to be as fresh as possible, Desiree or King William potatoes are well suited for this recipe. Store below 8ºC to prevent carbohydrate developing.
- The carrots are steamed for an extended length of time allowing the starches to fully convert into sugars, leaving an incredible natural sweetness and sublime texture. If you are short of time, you can steam for 25 minutes or until tender, however this won’t have the same level of sweetness and texture.
