Grilled Baby Carrots And Fennel With Romesco
8 – 12
Smoked romesco sauce on top of this roasted trio of baby carrots, fingerling potatoes and fennel bulbs will make you sing Hallelujah thanks to it intensely fresh and tangy wood-fired flavor.
1 Pound slender rainbow carrots or regular carrots with tops on
2 fennel bulbs, stalks and cores removed and halved
1 Pound fingerling potatoes, washed and halved lengthwise
1/4 Cup olive oil
1 Tablespoon thyme or rosemary leaves
1When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 500℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
2Trim the carrot tops to 1 inch. Peel the carrots and halve any larger ones so they are all about 1/2 inch thick. Cut the fennel bulbs lengthwise into 1/2 inch thick slices. Place the carrots, fennel and potato slices in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and a generous teaspoon of salt. Toss to coat the vegetables evenly with the oil.
3Transfer the vegetables a sheet pan. Nestle a few sprigs of herbs into the vegetables as well.
4Place the pan directly on the grill grate and cook, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are browned and softened, about 35 to 45 minutes. Allow to cool and serve with the Smoked Romesco Sauce. Enjoy!
