Roasted Carrots & Shallots with Oil-Cured Olives & Gremolata

Article Image
Scott Phillips

Servings: six.

The sweet earthiness of the carrots pairs perfectly with the briny flavor of the olives and the vibrant gremolata of garlic, lemon zest, and parsley.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Zest of 1 medium lemon, finely chopped (1-1/2 to 2 Tbs.)
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 lb. medium carrots
  • 1 cup 1/4-inch-thick-sliced shallot rounds (3 or 4 medium shallots)
  • 1 Tbs. fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup pitted and thinly sliced oil-cured olives

Preparation

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 425ºF.
  • Toss the parsley, lemon zest, and garlic in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and set aside (this is the gremolata).
  • Peel the carrots and slice in half lengthwise. If they’re big, slice each half lengthwise again into long quarters. Put the carrots on a large rimmed baking sheet and toss with the shallots, thyme, olive oil, salt, and several grinds of pepper. Arrange the carrots in a single layer.
  • Roast the carrots, tossing occasionally, until they are tender and ever so slightly browned, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss in the olives and the gremolata. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.

Tip

To prep the lemon zest for the gremolata, peel it off in long strips with a vegetable peeler, cut away any of the white pith, and chop the zest finely.

    This was delicious. The recipe was most excellent as written. I will eat carrots raw but cooked carrots have never been a favorite of mine. Until this dish. It's that good.

    I absolutely loved this dish. Made it just the way it's written but had to use kalamata olives, I could not find oil-cured ones.
