Spicy Carrot Spread/Dip

1 lb carrots
1 Tbs Sesame Seed
1/2 Tbs Mustard Seed
1/4 tsp Cumin Seed
Pinch Cayenne 
Salt
1 Tbs Olive Oil

Peel and slice the carrots thin. Toast the seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until they are very fragrant and toasted slightly darker. Add 1/4 cup water to the the skillet and a sprinkle or two of salt and cayenne, depending on how hot you like it! Cover and cook about 20 mintues, stirring a few times, just until the carrots are tender. Add a spoonful of water if they're starting to stick to the pan before they're cooked through. Move the mixture to the food processor and blend until smooth. Add a tablespoon of good tasting olive oil about half way through processing. This will enrich the spread and make it smoother too. Serve warm or cold - its delicious either way!
