Cuisine: American
Keyword: Roasted Carrots, Sesame, Tahini
Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb carrots with greens
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 3/4 c chicken stock or sub veg stock
  • 1/4 c apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Lemon Sesame Dressing

  • 1/4 c tahini
  • 1/4 c lemon juice
  • 1/4 c warm water
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

  • Remove carrot greens and set aside. Thoroughly wash carrots but do NOT peel. Place carrots in rimmed baking sheet.
  • Whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour over the carrots and cover with foil. Marinade for 30 minutes, occasionally rolling the carrots around in the marinade.
  • While the carrots are marinating, preheat oven to 400 degrees and chop reserved carrot greens.
  • Add carrots to oven with foil on, bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove foil, turn carrots. Return to oven and cook uncovered 20-25 minutes. If carrots begin to dry out add a small amount of water.
  • Carrots are done when they pierce easily with a fork and not mushy. Liquid should be thick and gooey. Move to serving plate, garnish with chopped carrot greens and lemon sesame dressing.

Lemon Sesame Dressing

  • Mix all ingredients in small food processor or blender. Salt to taste. Dressing should be thin enough to drizzle, add additional warm water if needed.

Notes

  1. AIP compliant- omit paprika and leave off tahini dressing.
  2. If you don't enjoy the tartness of apple cider vinegar reduce to 1/8 cup.
