Neela's Famous Mediterranean Roasted Carrots

This is my ultimate favorite recipe because of all of the flavors and colors it brings out! It is perfect for any gathering, holiday or as a side dish to almost any dish. Enjoy!


Serves: 4


Ingredients:

  • Multicolored, organic carrots

  • EVOO

  • Garlic Powder

  • Cumin

  • Za'atar spice

  • Labneh yogurt

  • Lemon juice

  • Pomegranates

  • Chopped Walnuts

  • Fresh herbs of your choice: rosemary or thyme



Instructions:

  • Wash and peel multicolored organic carrots

  • On a baking sheet, place carrots and drizzle with EVOO, sprinkle some garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper

  • Roast for 30-35 minutes (check on them halfway thru and flip them so they evenly cook)

  • For the labneh spread, use:

  • 1/2 cup of labneh

  • Mix with 1/2 lemon

  • A dash of cumin and za'atar

  • 1 tablespoon of EVOO

  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk until thick and creamy

  • With a spatula, evenly spread labneh in the center of your serving dish

  • Remove carrots from oven and place on top of labneh on the serving dish. I like doing alternating directions every other carrot

  • Top with pomegranates and chopped walnuts

  • Drizzle everything with a little EVOO

  • Sprinkle za'atar spice

  • Garnish with some herbs


Bon Appetit!
