Ingredients

  • cup (40 g) raw hazelnuts
  • pounds (680 g) heirloom carrots, trimmed and scrubbed
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons (90 mL) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher or fine sea salt , to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • 1 cup (40 g) chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as parsley, oregano, tarragon, dill or thyme
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) minced garlic
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon (1 g) ground cumin, to taste
  • Juice of ½ lemon

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Arrange the hazelnuts in a single layer on a small rimmed baking sheet and toast until browned and fragrant, stirring occasionally, about 10-12 minutes. Remove loose skins and chop roughly.
  • Increase oven heat to 400°F. In a large mixing bowl, toss the carrots with 2 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper until evenly coated. Arrange them in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roast for 25-28 minutes or until tender, turning halfway through. Let cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the hazelnuts, herbs, garlic, lemon zest, and cumin. Pulse until the hazelnuts are finely chopped, the herbs are minced, and the mixture is just combined. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in the lemon juice and ¼ cup oil to make a thick paste. Season with salt, to taste.
  • Transfer the carrots to a platter and top with the gremolata. Serve immediately.
