The winter holidays are upon us, but there’s no reason you can’t bring a little summer into your celebrations! With all the rich, heavy, calorie-laden treats available at holiday gatherings, it’s refreshing to have a lighter treat like my Farm Garden Vegetable Dip available for snacking, too.
Whether it’s holiday brunch or a late night gathering, no matter what your celebration style is, your guests will enjoy having a delicious vegetable dip to enjoy. This is one of my tried-and-true favorites (that’s even featured in my newest book – it’s that good!) Hope you and your guests enjoy it as much as my family does!

Using a food processor, add carrots, pepper, and broccoli. Pulse until chipped fine and fully mixed.
Add ground pepper (and optional curry powder, if desired.) Pulse until fully combined and smooth.
