This has perfectly balanced oomph: the sweetness of the carrots, that particular herbal freshness of fennel, the mellow citrus tang of clementine (though the zest of half an orange, along with 2 tablespoons of juice, would do), and the aromatic heat of harissa.
, peeled and cut into approx. 1 1/2 inch long batons
, trimmed, halved from top to bottom, then cut into approx. 1/2-inch thick slices
, finely grated zest, plus 2 tbsp juice
sea salt flakes or kosher
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Put the prepared carrots and fennel into a large bowl. Add the harissa, oil, clementine zest and juice, and teaspoon of salt and toss well to combine.
- Tip into a shallow roasting pan, scraping out the bowl well, give a final toss to mix, spread out in the pan and roast for 40–50 minutes – giving a stir after 30 – until the carrot is just cooked through and the fennel soft. Taste, and add more salt (or not) as desired.
