Roasted Carrots With Harissa And Toasted Pistachios

Roasted Carrots With Harissa And Toasted Pistachios

I love the rustic look of whole roasted carrots. They are delicious and so simple. Try and find the heirloom carrots (did you know that all carrots used to be purple? Another article on that some day!) I make my own harissa, but you can use purchased sauce if desired. Serve the carrots hot or at room temperature with chicken, beef or fish.
