Carrot Puree with Egyptian Dukkah

Found on Prospect: The Pantry blog... dip the bread in olive oil and then in the dukkah (or add the dukkah to the oil) and spoon on the carrot puree. Honestly, the carrot puree is fabulous on its own and I could imagine skipping the bread and oil and simply adding the spice and nut mixture straight into the carrots. Or skipping the carrots and piling the dukkah on bread dipped in olive oil.
