- 1/2 lb carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch by 2-inch strips
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil (preferably neutral-tasting, like canola or grapeseed)
- 2 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Kalbi Marinade
- 12 small lettuce leaves
- 1 bunch fresh herbs (basil, mint, and/or cilantro), finely chopped
- 1 Treviso or 1/4 radicchio, finely sliced (see Cook’s Tip)
- Black sesame or nigella seeds
- Red chile peppers, (sliced or finely chopped)
- Preheat oven to 450 F. Place carrots on a sheet pan and toss with oil. Spread out and roast for 12 minutes, or until carrots start to caramelize.
- Remove from oven and add marinade, tossing until carrots are coated. Roast for an additional 1-2 minutes.
- Arrange lettuce leaves on a platter. Fill with 3-4 carrot strips. Garnish with herbs, Treviso or radicchio, seeds, and red chile pepper. If you like heat, drizzle with a little gochujang.
- Cook’s Tip:
- Treviso is a leafy winter vegetable from the chicory family that looks like a purple endive. It is not only beautiful in color, but it has a delicious crunch and a unique, sweet-bitter flavor that complements the roasted carrots. Cut it in half lengthwise and chiffonade (slice into very thin strips).
