Grilled Carrots & Yogurt Ingredients:

1 Bunch of rainbow carrots (with tops)

Olive oil

Salt & pepper

Plain Yogurt (for serving)



Trim carrots and leave 1” of top attached. (Set remainder of tops aside for sauce)

Wash carrots, do not peel.

Toss carrots with olive oil, salt and pepper.


To Cook:

Preheat oven to 450°F

Place seasoned carrots on a sheet pan and cook on the top rack of the oven for 11 – 15 minutes, turning carrots every 4½ minutes.

Boil the tops for 2:30 minutes in lightly salted water, drain and squeeze dry.

Chop finely and mix with enough olive oil to make it loose and spoonable.
