Here’s a simple yet impressive vegetable side that will feed a crowd. Halved carrots are tossed with olive oil and roasted until browned and tender, then topped with a sprinkling of za’atar, the Middle Eastern spice mix whose nutty, earthy notes pair beautifully with the carrots’ natural sweetness.


  1. Preheat 2 baking sheets in a 450 degree oven. Quarter 4 pounds carrots lengthwise and toss with 1/4 cup olive oil and 3/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Spread on the hot baking sheets and roast until browned, 18 to 20 minutes. Toss with 4 teaspoons za'atar (a spice blend available at Middle Eastern markets), 3 tablespoons chopped parsley and the juice of 1 lemon.
