Grapes, in my opinion, are the unsung heroes of the culinary scene. I recently brought a salad with roasted grapes in it to a sheva brachos we were co-hosting. Everyone loved it, and several people asked me what that fruity taste that they couldn’t place was. When I admitted it was roasted grapes, the woman sitting next to me said, “Estee, if I had seen a recipe with roasted grapes I never would have tried it, but now that I’ve tasted it, I’m going to make it.” I hope you try it too!
Roasted Grapes and Carrots
- Cooking and Prep: 30 m
- Serves: 6
Prepare the Roasted Grapes and Carrots
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
Place the grapes and the carrots in a large bowl along with the spices and oil. Mix everything together and spread on a lined baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes.
Add parsley and toss. Serve warm or room temperature alongside meat or chicken.
Drizzle with whole sesame tahini, if desired, before serving.
For a slightly different taste, heat one tablespoon oil in a wok and add two frozen garlic cubes. Add sugar snap peas and stir-fry over high heat. Toss into the carrot and grape mixture. Serve warm.
