Lovely flavour combinations. Next time I would cut the carrot into smaller, irregular chunks before roasting. I found the sticks (which still had a decnt bite after a 20min roast) a bit awkward to eat!

I enjoyed this, despite being a twonk - using tablespoons of oil rather teaspoons, and overboiling the carrots. If you have half a brain on what you're doing, you'll end up with a nice plate of food. The caraway is lovely.

These ingredients work really well together. They are exciting flavours, it's fresh and zingy and it must be tried! However, I do not think this is enough for a main meal as advertised in the Good Food magazine, but as a starter for 4 people it is perfect.

Thanks for your question. This recipe was designed to stand alone but it would also be lovely with couscous, wild and white rice or a slice of crusty bread. Enjoy!
