Roasted Carrot Salad Over Wild Rice

Roasted Carrot Salad Over Wild Rice
In This Article

Fresh bunched carrots with the tops taste much fresher than the woody, bagged variety. Here, we roast whole carrots with lightly crushed coriander seeds to amp up their earthy flavor and serve them on a bed of wild rice. Topped with a quick-chopped carrot top-goji berry-seed pesto, it looks like a dish from a hip restaurant, but it’s dead simple to make.

A lot of salads miss the mark because they don’t provide enough carbs for energy and satiety; however, this salad incorporates a high-fiber carb option with rice and carrots to ensure your meal is balanced. Add a protein like chicken or tofu to make this a full, balanced meal.
