Honey Roasted Carrots with Tahini Yogurt


  • Tahini-yogurt sauce:
  • 3 Tbsp tahini paste
  • 2/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed salt
  • Carrots:
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp coriander seeds, toasted and lightly crushed
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, toasted and lightly crushed
  • 3 thyme sprigs
  • salt and black pepper
  • 12 large carrots, peeled and cut into batons
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped


    1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place all the ingredients for the tahini sauce in a bowl with a pinch of salt. Whisk together and set aside.
    2. Place the honey, oil, coriander and cumin seeds, and thyme in a large bowl with 1 teaspoon salt and a good grind of black pepper. Add the carrots and mix well until coated, then spread them out on a large baking sheet and roast in the oven for 40 minutes, stirring gently once or twice, until cooked through and glazed.
    3. Roast two cloves of garlic in a separate pan alongside the carrots. Once tender, mash with a fork and fold into the yogurt sauce. Transfer the carrots to a large serving platter or individual plates. Serve warm or at room temperature, with a spoonful of sauce on top, scattered with the cilantro.
