Gluten Free – Dairy Free – Plant-Based
Who’s sick of roasted veggies yet?! No one? I can’t say I’m surprised. I love them anytime of year but the best selection I find really happens in Fall and Winter, just in time for all of those lovely holiday meals. Like these Local Organic Multi Coloured Carrots I seriously can’t get enough of. I honestly am more than happy to roast my veggies with a little oil and a little salt and pepper and eat them as is but this Maple Miso Tahini dressing adds a really lovely dimensions, I mean maple and carrots, duh! And the pomegranate seeds on top add just the perfect amount of crunch.
My carrots were Large so roasting time may vary depending on what size your carrots are but mine took about 45 minutes. I also like to leave mine a little firm, I’m not a big fan of mushy cooked veg.
This Miso Maple Tahini dressing also makes more than enough for the carrots but I always like to keep some in the fridge for the week to go with salads as well, should last in a glass container in the fridge for about 5 days.
This dish is great on it’s own during the week or as a pretty dish to sit along with your main event OR as a dish to contribute to a Friendsgiving or maybe Turkey dinner at your parents house, either way they’ll be wow’d with this colourful dish.
As always, if you try this dish please tag me in your creation on Instagram #extraforavocado
