By Bryce Gilmore From Moveable Feast Season 3, Ep.13
Scott Phillips

Servings: 4 to 6


  • 2 Tbs. pumpkin seeds
  • 2 Tbs. sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbs. sesame seeds
  • 2 dried pasilla chiles, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. sherry vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced garlic scapes or scallions, thinly sliced (about 2 scapes or scallions)
  • 1-1/2 cups (about 8 oz.) goat cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-1/2 lbs. medium carrots, trimmed and quartered lengthwise, about 7
  • 1 lime, halved
  • Cilantro leaves, left whole, for garnish
  • Mint leaves, torn, for garnish
  • Chive blossom flower buds, for garnish


  • Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to 450ºF.
  • In a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat, toast the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds, about 3 minutes. Remove to a plate and wipe out the skillet. Add the pasilla chile and toast until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, and1/4 tsp. salt. Add the seeds back to the skillet with the vinegar-honey mixture and stir over low heat until just combined, about 30 seconds. Cover to keep warm.
  • In a small bowl, combine the garlic scapes, goat cheese, 1/4 cup of the olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. black pepper (more to taste), until well blended. Spread onto a serving platter, cover lightly with plastic wrap and set aside.
  • Toss the carrots with the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil and generously season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the grill and cook until tender and charred in places, flipping occasionally, 12 to 15 minutes.
  • To serve, place the carrots on top of the goat cheese mixture. Squeeze the lime halves over the carrots and goat cheese mixture. Drizzle with seed-honey mixture and garnish with cilantro, mint leaves, and chive blossoms.

    A definite crowd pleaser. Seems like a lot of steps but isn't really difficult.
