May in the Kitchen – Roast Carrots with Harissa Aioli and Seedy Mix

I’m on a roll with the Seedy Seasoning Mix, this time with roast carrots and a spicy harissa garlic mayonnaise. The combination of sweet roast carrots, spicy garlic sauce, and crunchy seeds is quite delightful. The original recipe called for dukkah but I think it is just as wonderful with my seedy mix. You can substitute dukkah if you have it and haven’t had a chance to make yourself a batch of seedy mix.

  4. Roast the carrots, turning once, until brown and tender. This will take anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes depending on their size.
