This recipe elevates the humble carrot by adding the rich, caramelised goodness of roast dates and the nutty crunch of salty pecans; all enveloped in a honey-kissed glaze.


  • 600 g of carrots
  • 1 tbsp (15g) tahini
  • 150 g Greek yoghurt
  • 200g Medjool dates
  • 70g raw pecan nuts
  • 2 tbsp (30g) honey
  • One teaspoon of cumin seeds (ground roughly)
  • Picked dill or chopped parsley to garnish
  • Olive oil, salt and pepper as needed


  1. In the oven:
    Preheat the oven to 180°C (356 °F).
    In the Air Fryer:
    Preheat the air fryer to 165°C (330 °F).
  2. Peel the carrots and cut them in half. Place the carrots into a roasting tray cut side down, drizzle them in olive oil, salt and pepper. Place your carrots into the air fryer or oven and roast for 25-30 minutes, until softened.
  3. Take the stones out of the dates, tear them into four chunks and roughly chop the pecan nuts.
  4. Combine the yoghurt, tahini, and salt and pepper to taste. Add a small splash of water to make the tahini yoghurt a nice spreadable consistency. Set aside
  5. Once the carrots are soft and starting to turn golden, scoot them over to one side of the roasting dish.
  6. Add the dates in the space, alongside the carrots. Drizzle the carrots and dates with one tablespoon of honey and one teaspoon of cumin seeds
  7. Return the dates to the oven for 10 -12 more minutes or until the dates crisp at the edges.
  8. In a bowl, toss the pecans with a drizzle of oil and the remaining honey. In the last 3 minutes of roasting add the pecans in with the dates. Roast until lightly golden.
  9. Remove the roasting dish from the oven, and toss some flaked sea salt, if you have, through the dates and pecans.
  10. Spoon the tahini yoghurt onto a plate, top with your roasted carrots then scatter over the pecans and crispy, sticky dates.
  11. Finish with a little fresh dill pr chopped parsley and serve
