Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. carrots
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 tablespoon epazote or thyme
  • 2 tablespoons pork fat or butter
  • lemon for zesting (about 1/2 tablespoons)
  • 1 handful arugula
  • extra virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Season and coat carrots with pork fat and epazote and roast for 30–40 minutes or until caramelized and tender (tossing occasionally). With about 10 minutes left on the carrots add the walnuts to toast them.
  2. Combine pesto and yogurt with a touch of lemon zest, season with salt and pepper.
  3. Smear pesto yogurt on a plate, lay in carrots and top with walnuts and dressed arugula (olive oil and lemon juice is easy).

Pro Tip: Pre-heat the sheet pan to get good caramelization on the carrots.
