Glazed Carrots with Green Harissa & Benne Seed Crunch
At The Anchorage in Greenville, South Carolina, chef Greg McPhee has a waste-free ethos and uses the entire carrot, including the greens, for this spicy, nutty side dish made with benne seeds, a local variety of sesame. To make sure they cook evenly, halve larger carrots lengthwise so they are all about the same size and no wider than 1 inch.

Benne seeds are a South Carolina staple. They're similar to sesame seeds, but have a more distinct, bitter taste. Find them online.
