Roasted Carrots with Burrata and Glazed Walnuts

Key Ingredients in This Recipe

  • Walnuts – Diamond Glazed Walnuts are perfect for this recipe as they roast the nuts until perfectly toasted and then coat them with a crackly glaze. While they are delicious on their own (I can’t stop snacking on them – I’m writing this with my hand in the bag as I type) and in addition to this carrot recipe, glazed walnuts also go perfectly when paired with oatmeal, yogurt or on pancakes!
  • Carrots – I find using smaller carrots with trimmed tops to be the most aesthetically pleasing for this side dish though you can substitute baby carrots or roughly chopped large carrots as well.
  • Burrata – Burrata, a soft cow’s milk cheese from Italy, is essentially mozzarella filled with a creamy interior. It has become very popular in recent years for its rich, clean flavor. The cold, creamy cheese is the perfect contrast to the roasted carrots and crisp nuts.
