Ingredients

  • 2 lbs carrots long, thin (See NOTE 1)

Marinade

  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon rose water
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • teaspoon ground cinnamon

Dressing

  • ½ cup plain Greek Yogurt
  • ¼ cup heavy cream

Garnish

  • ¼ cup dill roughly chopped
  • ¼ cilantro roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Trim the ends and peel the carrots. Place in a steamer and steam for 8 minutes or microwave for 5 minutes. Drain any accumulated water. They should be al dente.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the dressing ingredients and pour over the steamed carrots, tossing to coat and absorb. Set aside to cool.
  • Mix the yogurt and heavy cream together. Spoon over carrots, stir gently, but do not over mix. Transfer to serving platter or bowl and sprinkle the herbs on top and a grind or two of fresh ground black pepper.

Notes

  1. Any type of carrots will work, but I use heirloom baby carrots. The color and flavor are a nice change from traditional baby carrot recipes, and the greens make for a nice presentation.
