Rich orange base, sharp garlic crunch, and a bright parsley finish; having simanim play out in different dishes of your Yom Tov table is always fun, but sweet roasted carrots covered in a garlic-infused oil makes it delicious as well.


  • 4 carrots, sliced into half-moons
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chili lime seasoning
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp granulated garlic
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2 cups roughly chopped parsley leaves
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 5 scallions, green parts only, sliced (reserve white parts for dressing)
Garlic Dressing
  • 1½ Tbsp oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, diced
  • 5 scallions, white parts only, sliced (reserved from salad)
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp brown sugar or honey
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 450°F (240°C).

Toss carrots with olive oil and spices, then place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 25–30 minutes until carrots are soft and nicely roasted.

Meanwhile, prepare the dressing: Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic and scallions and cook for about 5 minutes, shaking the pan, until the garlic is golden in color. Remove from heat. Add soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, salt, and pepper; mix. Set aside.

To serve: Prepare a bed of parsley. Top with carrots, then sesame seeds and scallions. Toss with the garlic dressing and enjoy.
