A really lovely sweet, spicy side dish. The roasting intensifies and marries all the flavours with the dates, adding a sweet, chewy element. Try to use medjool dates, as the dried dates you get in packets often lack the caramel flavours of ‘proper’ dates. Look for ginger that is heavy for its size, as it will contain the most juice. To make the ginger juice needed here, grate root ginger, place it in a nylon sieve over a bowl and press on it. The juice comes through.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 carrots, peeled and cut into 5 cm batons
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala
1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 teaspoon chilli powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger juice
3-4 mejdool dates, chopped
sea salt

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  2. Toss the carrots with the oil, seasoning, ground spices and ginger juice and place on a baking sheet in the middle of the oven. Roast for 20–22 minutes or until done. Stir in the dates and serve.
