Roast Moroccan Carrots with Baba ganoush

My love affair with vegetables continues with this incredible roast carrot dish.  Inspired by Moroccan flavours, this combination of roasted flavours is quiet incredible.

These dutch carrots, and the introduction of purple carrots is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also sweet and savoury at the same time.

Served on a bed of baba ganoush and then topped with corn and pistachio nuts, it truly is a memorable dish.
