This dish is so easy. And tasty too!

If you’re after something a little different to include as a side dish with your next meal you MUST try this dish of roasted carrots with fennel and goats cheese.

As I’ve explained on numerous occasions, I adore the aniseed flavour found in fennel.

Pair it with something earthy and a little sweet and top it off with something creamy.  This combination works beautifully!

These carrots looked way too good when I spotted them at the markets recently.  Rather than turning them into a soup or a mash they were roasted at a high temperature and served  along with some keftedes and some domatorizo.

roasted carrots with fennel and goats cheese…the best side dish!

I’ve used freshly ground fennel seeds in this dish which I ground in a mortar and pestle. The flavour is subtle but you can definitely taste it’s there.  I had also wanted to use goats curd instead of the cheese but couldn’t find any. It still was a treat!

Garnish it with some aromatic coriander and this is a side dish you won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

Trust me!
