Ingredients

Pomegranate Dressing:

Directions

  1. Whisk together the yogurt, mint and lemon zest in a bowl and swirl in the harissa. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside to let the flavors meld while you prepare the carrots.
  2. Bring a pot of well-salted water to a boil. Set up a bowl of well-salted ice water. Blanch the carrots in the boiling water until slightly al dente (they should still have crunch). Immediately plunge the carrots into the ice water and leave them to cool for 2 minutes. Drain well. Rub the skins off the carrots with a clean kitchen towel.
  3. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat until the oil shimmers. Add the carrots, paprika, cumin, mustard and fennel and cook until the carrots are charred. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the carrots to a serving dish and top with dollops of the yogurt sauce. Garnish with mint leaves and pomegranate seeds. Serve with pomegranate dressing.

Pomegranate Dressing:

  1. Whisk together the pomegranate molasses, mustard, vinegar, canola and some salt and pepper until smooth.

Cook’s Note

Look for real baby carrots, the ones with the green tops left on, not the large carrots that have been whittled down.
