Roasted carrots with butter, cumin and orange

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s carrots, enough said. And if it wasn’t, it has orange. And cumin. The perfect side dish for your roast…

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 750g carrots, peeled and cut into thick batons
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange, plus some juice

Directions

Preheat the oven to 175oC

Put the oil and butter into a large baking dish and leave in the oven for a couple of minutes, until the butter melts. Remove from the oven and add the carrots, cumin, and plenty of salt and pepper. Toss together, cover with foil, and return to the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until the carrots are tender.

Remove from the oven, take off the foil, and give everything a good stir. Then return to the oven, uncovered, for about 20 to 30 minutes, so the carrots start to caramelise.

When you take the dish from the oven, stir in the orange zest and a good squeeze or two of the juice. Serve at once
