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!

Eggplant Dip – Mediterranean flavour

This dip of eggplant, herbs and yoghurt is a great accompaniment to roast meat and fish. It goes perfectly well with my recipe of Greek mince steaks with grilled watermelon. But even as a starter it is unbeatable: simply serve as a spread on crispy roasted bread. Fits.

Women’s power and the color lilac
