Carrots with Black Sesame and Ginger


Carrots with Black Sesame and Ginger



Adapted from Gwyneth Paltrow’s “It’s All Good” Serves 4

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp finely minced ginger
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • Sea salt
  • 1 tsp tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • A couple of drops of toasted sesame oil


Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the ginger and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Add the carrot matchsticks and stir to combine. Season with a pinch of sea salt and add 1/4 C water to the skillet.

Cook the carrots until they just begin to soften and the water evaporates, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sesame oil, soy sauce, and black sesame seeds. This dish is great as a veggie side with some grilled halibut and brown rice.
