This takes your standard vegetable side to the next level. The roasted carrots are seasoned simply with salt, pepper and a touch of cayenne for a bit of spice then topped with creamy burrata cheese and some crispy, glazed walnuts.
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.
How to Make Roasted Carrots with Burrata and Glazed Nuts
Season the carrots. Heat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Toss the carrots in olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet in an even single layer. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne.
Roast. Roast until tender, about 25 minutes.
Assemble and serve. Arrange on a platter and top with burrata and glazed walnuts. Serve immediately.
