Servings 2


  • About 2 lb medium carrots


  • 2 oz chopped pistachios

Tahini Dressing (Protein + Fat)

  • 2 oz tahini, 1 protein serving
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, 1 fat serving
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder or fresh grated garlic
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, strained to catch seeds
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp warm water
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp good quality salt


  • 1 Tbsp preferred oil for roasting, I use olive oil or coconut oil



  • Position the rack in the middle of the oven and then preheat to 400°F.
  • Scrub the carrots well but do not peel. Trim off the leafy green tops, leaving an inch or so. Cut the carrots in half lengthwise and place onto a rimmed, metal baking sheet.
  • Rub the carrots with the 1 tbsp of oil, turmeric, curry powder, smoked paprika, oregano, garlic powder, pepper, and salt. Place the carrots cut-side facing down onto a rimmed metal baking sheet.
  • Roast for 25-30 minutes, rotating the pan partway through.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the tahini sauce ingredients.
  • Once the carrots are roasted, immediately transfer them to a platter. Drizzle the tahini sauce over it and garnish with the chopped pistachios and cilantro.

    • You use a total of 2 lbs of carrots (not oz) and that comes out to about 10-12 oz veggies per serving after roasting.
