Seasonal local food recipe No.203 – Hugh’s carrots with almonds and cuminPosted on November 3rd, 2013 No comments
Hugh says: “Very good with fish or chicken, and I love it with hummus and flatbread, in which case I often add some segments of orange and a squeeze of orange juice.”
500g carrots, peeled and sliced about 4mm thick on the diagonal
100g whole, blanched almonds
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Bring a pan of salted water to a boil, add the carrots, cook for five minutes, until tender, then drain.
Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Toast the almonds, tossing frequently, until golden all over. Transfer to a mortar. Toast the cumin in the same pan for a few minutes until fragrant, add to the almonds, then lightly bash.
Put the still-warm carrots in a bowl, add the nuts, seeds and oil, season, toss and serve.Seasonal local food recipes camel community supported agriculture, Camel CSA, carrots, hugh fearnley-whittingstall, seasonal local food recipe, vegetable boxes
