Recipe: Roast Carrots with Whipped Yogurt

I love roasting vegetables, but I’ve never been a fan of carrots. I think this was due partly to my dear mom forcing me to eat her rubbery carrot rounds with mustard seeds. To this day, I’m still not a fan of carrots sliced in rounds.

But when I saw a gorgeous bundle of multicolored carrots at the store, I decided to give them another shot. These turned out so much tastier than I expected. The carrot’s natural sweetness really shines here, and the nice light addition of herbs is a nice complement. This is a perfect side dish, and tastes like classic comfort food. Enjoy and happy baking!

 

Roasted Carrots
Adapted from a New York Times recipe 
3 to 4 servings

1 lb. carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
1-2 Tbsp. avocado oil
1 tsp. fresh thyme
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
¾ cup plain Greek yogurt, plus more as needed
¼ cup heavy cream

• Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil wiped with oil.
• In a mixing bowl, toss the carrots with the oil and thyme. Spread the carrots onto the baking sheet in an even layer and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and bake 20 minutes.
• Reduce the heat to 375 degrees and bake another 10 to 15 minutes until the carrots are tender.
• In a small bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the yogurt and cream on medium-high speed until thick and stiff.
• Transfer the carrots to a serving bowl and gently toss with parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with the whipped yogurt.
