These roasted carrots are topped with a dukkah and tahini dressing. The sweetness of the roasted baby carrots, the spiciness of the dukkah and the nutty and citrusy flavours of the dressing complement one another perfectly.
What is a Dukkah and Tahini dressing?
Dukkah is a Middle Eastern condiment made up of herbs, nuts and spices. It is a traditional dip often served with bread or vegetables, such as these roasted carrots.
This is usually presented as a starter or a side dish in Middle Eastern cuisine.
The dip has an unmistakably nutty flavour, which is complemented by bright and citrus tastes from spices such as coriander and cumin.
Dukkah also adds a wonderfully crunchy texture to the dish, due to the addition of nuts.
Tahini is a condiment also from Middle Eastern cuisine. The dip is created by toasting sesame seeds and is vital for creating hummus.
It has a rich, nutty taste and is smooth and creamy, similar to a runny nut butter.
How can I serve roasted carrots with dukkah and tahini dressing?
You can also add the roasted carrots to a hearty couscous salad with lots of other veggies. You could make some extra dukkah and tahini dressing to top it off for the perfect Middle Eastern inspired salad.
