There’s something about carrots at the farmers’ market that I find utterly addictive. I can’t pass by without buying them, especially when they still have their beautiful green stems. They just get me every time.

Which is why I love when I come up with a recipe to use these beauties. And this roasted carrots with tahini, mint and pistachios is as addictive as those beautiful carrots.

If you love tahini, you will love this recipe. There is a sweet and savoury component: The carrots get sweet from roasting, while the tahini adds a nutty richness. Brightened with fresh mint and crunchy pistachios, it’s as beautiful as it is delicious.

Oh, and it’s incredibly simple to throw together. Serve it with some simple salmon on a weeknight, or with fancier entrées for guests on Shabbat or the holidays.
