Magic Spice Roasted Carrots with Whipped Tahini

Magic Spice Roasted Carrots with Whipped Tahini

This recipe is as beautiful as it is delicious! It comes from Heather Sperling & Zarah Khan of Botanica, who created it in partnership with our friends at CAP Beauty!


For the Carrots
12 small to medium carrots 
Extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp of CAP's The Magic Spice
½ c toasted pistachios
½ c pomegranate seeds

For the Whipped Tahini
c of Seed + Mill Organic Tahini 
2 cloves garlic 
¼ cup lemon juice
1 tbsp salt
1 c cold filtered water


For the Carrots

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Halve any larger carrots lengthwise so the carrots are similar in size.
  2. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, lay carrots in a single layer (cut side-down, for those that are cut) and dress abundantly with olive oil. Sprinkle with The Magic Spice and roast until softened and caramelized – around 20 minutes, give or take, depending on their size. 

For the Sauce

  1. Add the garlic, lemon and salt to a food processor and pulse until the garlic is broken down to a paste. Add the tahini and pulse to incorporate. With the machine running, slowly stream in the water until the mixture is creamy and emulsified. It’s done when it holds a soft peak! 

To Serve

  1. Spread whipped tahini on a serving platter and lay carrots on top. Scatter pistachios and pomegranates over top and finish with another drizzle of olive oil.

There’s really no ‘recipe’ to write up here! We were just looking for an excuse to share these pretty pics by our friend, Chef Noreen Wasti!

We adapted this Shakshuka recipe from one of our favorites by chef, Eden Grinshpan, from her debut book, Eating out Loud. The recipe was perfect as is - we really only adapted it because we had a bunch of alternative vegetables we wanted to use from our Amber Waves Farm CSA box! There are so many ways to tweak a Shakshuka recipe to use the ingredients you have on hand…….just don’t leave out the Tahini Sauce drizzle :)
