Roasted Carrot Salad
This savory salad brings fall flavors. Roasted carrots get an herbaceous boost
from a lemon dill and parsley yogurt sauce. It’s a complete meal with protein rich
garbanzo beans, feta, and toasted almonds. Can easily be made vegan.
1 bunch carrots
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, for roasting carrots
1 can organic garbanzo beans, drained, salted,
with a squeeze of fresh lemon
2 radishes, sliced thin
2 cups mixed lettuces
½ tsp. fennel seeds
¼ cup salted almonds, coarsely chopped
4 oz. crumbled feta, optional
1 cup plain yogurt, or coconut milk yogurt for vegan
½ cup parsley, chopped
2 tbsp. fresh dill, chopped
½ tsp. sea salt, or to taste
pinch of ground black pepper
1 lemon, zested and juiced, more as needed
1 clove garlic, minced
Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl, adjust for seasoning. Can be made a day ahead.
Preheat oven to 375. If using organic carrots no need to peel them. Mix carrots in a bowl with olive oil, and salt. Lay the carrots out on a sheet pan, and roast for 35 minutes, or until tender.
In a shallow bowl add mixed lettuces, salt, and a sprinkle of lemon juice. Add seasoned garbanzo beans. Add radishes. Lay the roasted carrots on top of the greens. Sprinkle with salted almonds, and feta. Drizzle the yogurt sauce across the carrots, then on the greens. Finish with fennel seeds sprinkled on top of the carrots.
