  • Process carrot mixture, tahini, mint, lemon juice, coriander, and cumin in a food processor, stopping to scrape sides as necessary, until very smooth, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, and stir in salt and pepper. Cover and chill 4 hours or up to 2 days. Before serving, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired. Serve with flatbreads and crudités.
