I have made this as a starter at a number of vegetarian dinner parties, and it has always been a success.

The carrots I found a little odd in this recipe...the other components work really well together, but something just wasn't quite right.
Tip for those who do want to make it: the pomegranate goes off if you leave it mixed with the dish for any amount of time, so keep it seperate until serving and if making a big batch to use over a few days than make it without the pomegranate and add it last minute.

Delicious - I used plumped dried cranberries instead of the seeds to make this more budget-friendly.

What an interesting combination of flavours! It completely got me - fresh, light, easy to make! I really like freshness of orange juice/zest and pomegranate. YUM!

I would assume that you chop and then roast, this way you will get that lovely colour to all sides of the carrots.

This looks divine and I'm thinking of making it for friends at the weekend - anyone know how the carrots should be prepared before roasting? Would you chop and then roast or roast and then chop? Thanks
