Spiced carrots orange dukkah and tahini
LOVE LOVE LOVE carrots and this recipe is a total tribute to that love. Crunchy, sweet, savoury, creamy, just plain ole delicious and I will be forever finding more ways to use them in recipes and the everyday, beyond just the random carrot you find wrapped in paper towel in my handbag, which is my go to snack – always. This dish is divine – it’s made in one pan with all the juicy spice and sweetness of carrots and orange contrasted with two other of my fave kitchen ingredients – tahini and dukkah. Seriously so scrumptious!
