Sticky Roast Carrots & Chickpea Salad

January 24

This dish looks it’s best made with long thin carrots which become tender and caramelised in the oven. If you can’t find some, slice regular carrots into thin batons and follow the recipe- the results will be the same thought perhaps not instagram worthy. Don’t skimp on the herbs here, the flat leaf parsley and mint bring this dish alive and work particularly well with the sweetness of the pomegranate seeds.

  • time 35 mins
  • serves Serves 4
  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Place the carrots and chickpeas on a large flat low sided baking sheet and drizzle with honey and oil. Sprinkle over the paprika, cumin, turmeric and sea salt and toss to coat the carrots and chickpeas- spread out evenly across the tray.
  3. Roast the whole tray in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the carrots are tender and the chickpeas are crisp. While the carrots are in the oven, whisk together the yoghurt, tahini and lemon juice.

  4. When the carrots are ready, spread the taghourt across the base of a serving platter, tumble on the carrots and chickpeas and garnish with pomegranate seeds, toasted seeds and fresh herbs.
  5. Serve while still warm.
