  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 2 sprigs rosemary washed
  • 1 handful fresh thyme washed
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons tahini sesame seed paste

  • Scrub and trim the carrots then chop into 2 cm disks.
  • Place them on a large roasting tray.
  • Roughly crush the garlic with the side of your hand, peel and add to the roasting tray. Sprinkle all other ingredients apart from the tahini and place the roasting tray in the centre of the preheated oven.
  • Roast for 40 minutes, or until soft and golden, stirring regularly.
  • Discard the herbs, seeds and garlic.
  • Blend the carrots with the tahini. Add one or two tablespoons of olive oil if the dip is too thick, season to taste and leave to cool.
