Moroccan Carrots with Harissa and Feta

20 minutes
Carrots Easter Recipe


  • 12 whole carrots, peeled
  • 1 tbsp Harissa, more or less depending how spicy you like it
  • ¼ c Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 6 large cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 2 tbsp White Modena Vinegar
  • 1 lemon, segmented with juice
  • ½ c cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ c mint, chopped
  • ¼ c feta
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a pot of boiling salted water, blanch carrots for 5-7 minutes until just tender ensuring there is still a little crunch in the center. Drain and cool.

In a small bowl, whisk together harissa, extra virgin olive oil, garlic and vinegar.

Plate carrots on a rimmed serving dish and dress with harissa mixture, followed by segmented lemon and juice.

Top with cilantro, mint, feta and a pinch of salt and pepper just before serving.

Anna’s Tip: For even bigger flavor, make a day in advance through step 3 and let the carrots marinate in the fridge.
