Carrots with nut crumble, dill oil and yoghurt

Carrots with nut crumble, dill oil and yoghurt

April 28th, 2022 | main dishes

Good old carrot completely different: Carrots cooked al dente are served cold on yoghurt, along with aromatic dill oil and a crumble of hazelnuts, almonds, black sesame seeds and a pinch of cumin. A great performance for our honest carrot!

Carrots with nut crumble, dill oil and yoghurt

This – in the broadest sense – carrot salad can also be perfectly prepared for guests and served, for example, as part of an oriental menu. The crumble is easy to prepare. It stays fresh for at least a week in an airtight container. Incidentally, it also tastes great over ice cream or any other salad. The carrots can also be prepared well in advance, so when the guests arrive, all you have to do is arrange them.

Even on hot summer days, the carrots with nut crumble on yoghurt are absolutely delicious!

Vanilla Quince

Quinces are childhood memory for me. Grew up on the North Sea every summer we visited our grandparents in the Odenwald, a German low mountain range. In their (kitchen) garden they grew a quince tree in addition to many other fruit trees. Plums, apples, pears, we also had in our garden at home, but I had never seen quinces in North Germany. I thought they were unique in my grandparents‘ garden. Grandma Anna’s quince jelly was my favourite!
