These sumac roasted carrots with tahini sauce are the perfect side dish. The lemony sumac dusting on the carrots, the crunch of the pomegranate seeds and pistachios, all pairs beautifully with the creamy tahini sauce. —Sara Goldstein

Ingredients
  • 1 bunch Carrots
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sumac
  • 2 Garlic cloves

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. Trim the tops of the carrots, leaving some at the top for aesthetics. Peel and wash carrots very well.
  3. Toss the olive oil and sumac with the carrots.
  4. Roast for 20-25 minutes until crisp tender.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the tahini, lemon juice, salt, and water until smooth and creamy. Mix in the minced garlic. Stir and adjust lemon juice and salt to taste.
  6. When the carrots are ready, remove them from the oven and transfer to a serving plate. Drizzle tahini sauce over them and garnish with pistachios, pomegranate seeds, and parsley.
  7. Serve warm or room temperature.

Quickly went into my go-to recipes; mostly when pomegranates are in season. Notes for those allergic to tahini, sunflower seed butter is a great alternative!

Not great. Even though I was starving and on Whole30. The tahini sauce is somehow kind of dry and didn't do much for the carrots. Definitely chop the pistachios - I was lazy and didn't. Cilantro might add something to the dish, instead of parsley. 1
