Got these beautiful carrots from our local Food Assembly a few weeks ago. They were so very pretty, I wanted to show them off. So I sent photos of them to everyone (receiving a variety of responses in return) and then planned dinner around them: cumin roasted carrots with grilled lamb leg steaks, hummus, tzatziki, salad and pita chips.
Cumin Roasted Carrots
Allow 2 medium carrots per person (they reduce considerably in size as they cook)
¼ tspn cumin seeds per portion
½ tspn olive oil per portion
Pinch of salt and pepper
- Heat the oven to 190oC
- Peel the carrots, half length ways then width ways to make batons. Toss with the oil, cumin and seasoning and place on a baking tray (Don’t crowd).
- Roast for 30 – 40 mins, turning occasionally, until soft and caramelised.
