With Christmas just around the corner this quick Moroccan carrot bruschetta is perfect for entertaining or a dinner party.
This easy appetizer offers something a little different from the dips I regularly default to like hummus but they do pair beautifully together. All too often you go to parties and indulge in over- processed and indulgent food.
Whilst I don’t mind letting go a little, when it comes to the Christmas season, the parties seem to run into each other. Before you know it your one off indulgence is a whole month! I think this is a way of serving delicious healthy food that is also exciting for your guests!

How to make bruschetta toasts
In this recipe my little secret is to use bread slices from the French baguette stick to griddle.
You can buy the little toasts premade in some supermarkets, but I prefer the fresh result of toasting it myself.
The toasted bread is lovely and golden brown, an easy way to make the best bruschetta!

- 1. Boil or Steam carrots until soft for approximately 10 – 15 minutes, allow to cool.2. Blend all of the ingredients (except bread and 1 garlic clove, include the other clove) with a stick blender in a medium bowl or a food processor. Adjust seasoning with black pepper.
3. Slice bread stick on an angle in thick slices, spray with an extra virgin olive oil spray and rub with the half cut garlic and toast on a grill pan to achieve some nice grill marks.
4. Serve up either separately for people to dip themselves, or lay a single layer of the bread, and then spread over each bread piece for finger food.
This quantity would suit a small party, if you are entertaining a lot of people I would double this recipe.
Store any left over toasts in an airtight container or ziptop bag.
