This plate has around 200g of carrots (70 cals) and I would estimate the whole dish at around 160 calories. Eat with meat, fish, other vegetables or cheese.
If I was eating it as a main, I would crumble some goat's cheese on top. The thing I liked most was how easy it was to make:
Marinate the carrots in a mix of Harissa paste and oil. Place on an oven tray and cook until soft - ours took around 40 minutes (at 180ºC). Place on a plate with Greek yoghurt, sprinkle with salt, chopped mint, lemon juice and za'atar (a mix of dried thyme etc). Or why not add something else you like e.g. a touch of cumin, lemon zest, coriander and so on. I found many recipes for roasted carrots, most with similar ingredients. But mainly used this recipe here on Pinterest. I used less oil, but that was my preference.

Here's a link to our very first blog post about our weight loss journey, which we began in January 2011. We started this blog as a way of recording what we ate while losing weight. The blog is a food diary, and contains lots of recipes, tips and ideas about losing weight.
