Roasted Carrots with Avocado and Parmesan

Here’s a tasty recipe from 2011 Clean Up 2nd Place winner and boot camper, FP.

You need:

  • 1 pound of carrots
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • dash kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
  • grated Parmesan (optional)


  • heat oven to 400 degrees
  • peel carrots and cut them into equal sized pieces
  • in a bowl combine olive oil, salt, pepper and caraway seeds
  • add carrots to mixture in bowl
  • place carrots on baking sheet and roast for about 20min, flipping them twice in the process
  • after carrots are done, take them out of the oven and let them cool down slightly
  • while carrots cool down, peel and slice avocado
  • combine avocado and lemon juice in salad bowl
  • add the carrots while they are still warm (but not hot) and mix until all is well combined
  • add some freshly ground pepper and sprinkle grated Parmesan on top

Thanks, FP!
