  • 1 ½ pounds large carrots, scrubbed and halved lengthwise

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 lemon, halved

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds

  • ¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  2. Combine carrots, 1 tablespoon oil, salt and pepper on a large rimmed baking sheet; spread the carrots in an even layer. Place lemon halves on the baking sheet, flesh-sides down. Bake, stirring once, until the carrots are slightly charred and crisp-tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool, about 5 minutes.

  3. Squeeze the charred lemon halves through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium bowl; discard solids. Stir in dill, cilantro, coriander seeds and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil.

  4. Transfer the carrots to a cutting board; cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces. Add the carrots to the lemon mixture and toss to combine. Sprinkle evenly with feta. Garnish with dill, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
