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.
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.
