Sweet, smoky, and earthy genius. Pencil-thin carrots are baked on a bed of coffee beans that warm gently, releasing their oils. This unexpected dish celebrates all the advantages of slow cooking: the coffee fumes gradually infuse the vegetables, creating an ephemeral sensation of something roasted that one can identify as “coffee” only after the tongue whispers to the brain.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Rainbow Carrots
  • 2 Tbs. Pastured Butter
  • Sea Salt
  • 1 c. Coffee Beans

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees. Place a cast-iron skillet over medium heat to heat for about 5 minutes.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the carrots and melted butter and toss until the carrots are slicked with the glorious gold and the moisture is distributed evenly. Season with salt and set aside.

Step 3

Add the coffee beans to the hot skillet and remove from heat. Shake until the coffee is aromatic and the beans look a bit oily, about 3 minutes. Scatter the carrots over the beans in a single layer and cover the skillet with a lid or a sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake until the carrots are fork-tender and infused with coffee oil, 2 to 3 hours.

Step 4

Lift the carrots from the bed of coffee beans and serve immediately. Discard the coffee.


I am passionate about people. I simply love to bless others. More than that, I seek to heal others as well. Whether those blessings or restorations take place through my words, actions, or spirit, my effort and ability to touch others is simply a part of who I am. I have a way with words. The written Word is both my inspiration and my favor. The Word feeds me as I nurture others. I know food. My relationship with food is both vast and intimate. I know the chemistry of food, I know the art of food, and I oh so know the emotion of food. I adore food and yet I grieve it. My goal, though, is to respect food for what it is – nourishment.
