Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 bunches of carrots leafy greens attached
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil plus more for drizzling overtop
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt divided
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper divided
  • 2/3 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. curry powder
  • Optional: pomegranate arils for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in a single layer on cookie sheet, and bake until golden, shaking pan occasionally, about 5 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 425°F.
  • Trim leafy greens from carrots, rinse, and set aside. Place carrots on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper. (Make sure to give them plenty of room, which is key to roasted veggies with nicely browned edges.) Roast, tossing occasionally, until golden and tender, about 30 minutes.
  • While carrots roast, mix curry powder and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and pepper into yogurt. Spread yogurt on a serving platter or plate.
  • Arrange roasted carrots over yogurt and top with toasted almonds and a few leafy greens as garnish. If desired, sprinkle pomegranate arils overtop, and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
