Roasted Carrots with Yogurt, Lemon and Mint

roasted-carrots
These carrots are easy to make and full of flavour. I had a hard time finding zaa’tar (a blend of Middle Eastern herbs) but was able to make my own as an acceptable substitution. Get that recipe HERE.

These carrots are a wonderful accompaniment to lamb or seared pork. Low in calories, fat and only 3 Weight Watchers points.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF.
  2. Cut away the carrot tops and then scrub the carrots clean. Slice in half and place onto a baking sheet. In a small bowl mix the roasted pepper and 2 tbsp olive oil. Spread onto the carrots and rub with your hands to coat. Place into the oven and bake for 25 minutes, tossing half way through.
  3. In a small bowl add 1 - 2 tbsp of cold water to the Greek yogurt to thin it out. It should be slightly thinker than ranch dressing. Scoop the yogurt onto a plate and spread it around. Remove the carrots from the oven and place them on top of the yogurt. Season with the zaa'tar and salt.
  4. Drizzle with lemon juice, olive oil, and top with chopped mint. Serve warm or cold.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
