Roasted Carrots & Beets + Carrot-Top Pesto

Roasted Carrots & Beets + Carrot-Top Pesto - Organo Republic

This is a great dish to whip up if you are expecting company or you’re in charge of a side dish to bring to a party. If you can’t find carrots with their tops still in tact go ahead and just add extra parsley instead.

Ingredients:

Pesto

  •     1 cup carrots leaves (from about 1 small bunch of carrots)
  •     1/2 cup fresh parsley
  •     1/4 cup marcona almonds
  •     1 clove of garlic
  •     1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  •     1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  •     salt to taste

Honey Roasted Veggies

  •     1 bunch of carrots, tops removed and sliced in half lengthwise
  •     1 bunch of beets, tops removed and cut into 1/2 inch wedges
  •     3 tablespoons olive oil
  •     2 tablespoons honey
  •     salt and pepper to taste
  •     1/4 cup lightly toasted and chopped marcona almonds for serving

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F
  2. Roughy chopped the carrot tops and parsley. Add the greens to a food processor along with the almonds and garlic. Process until a smooth paste forms. With the motor running add the lemon juice and olive oil. Season to taste with salt (if you’re almonds were pre-salted add less!)
  3. In a large bowl toss the chopped carrots and beets with the oil and honey. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and roast until the veggies are fork tender and lightly browned. About 25-30 minutes. Toss halfway through cooking.
  4. Place the veggies on a platter and drizzle with the pesto, chopped almonds and additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature.
