As promised in a recent Around-The-World meme, here is a dish I bookmarked from a fellow foodbloged. I first saw this great recipe at Kalyn's Kitchen, and then a slightly modified version over at A Veggie Venture.
Here is a slightly "Europeanised" recipe:) A very flavoursome and colourful side dish or a light meal on its own - definitely worth a try. As carrots play a star role in this dish, make sure to use good quality organic carrots.
Kalyn's Roasted Carrots and Mushrooms with Thyme and Parsley
(Ahjus küpsetatud šampinjonid ja porgandid)
400-500 grams organic carrots, cut into chunks
225 grams brown button mushrooms, cleaned and quartered
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dried thyme
Maldon sea salt and black pepper
a generous handful of chopped parsley
Lay carrot chunks onto a medium size oven dish in one layer. Drizzle with olive oil, season with thyme, salt and pepper. Mix to coat evenly.
Roast in a pre-heated 225˚C oven for 15-20 minutes, until carrots start to soften a little.
Add the mushrooms, drizzle with some more olive oil and roast for another 15 minutes, until carrots are just tender and mushrooms softened.
Season and serve with some crusty bread as a light veggie meal, or as a side dish.
