Roasted Carrots with Burrata and Glazed Walnuts
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. 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 thebag as I type) and in addition to this carrot recipe, glazed walnuts also go perfectly when paired with oatmeal, yogurt or on pancakes!
1 bunch carrots, tops trimmed (if necessary)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt, as needed
Freshly ground black pepper, as needed
¼ teaspoon cayenne
8 ounces burrata
½ cup Diamond Nuts Original Glazed Walnuts
Heat oven to 400ºF. Toss the carrots in olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet in an even single layer. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne. Roast until tender, about 25 minutes.
Arrange on a platter and top with burrata and glazed walnuts. Serve immediately.
