On The Table: Recipe - Carrots Slow-Baked on Coffee Beans

Posted by on

Yield: Makes 4 servings  Time: 10 minutes prep, 2 to 3 hours cooking

Ingredients
  • 1 lb/455 g thin carrots (no thicker than 1/2 in/12 mm in diameter), peeled
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • Coarse sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 cup/90 g medium-roast coffee beans, preferably decaf
Instructions
 
Preheat the oven to 225°F/110°C/gas 1/4. Place a cast-iron skillet over medium heat to heat for about 5 minutes.
 
In a large bowl, combine the carrots, olive oil, and garlic and toss until the carrots are slicked with oil and the garlic bits are distributed evenly. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.
 
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 pan with a lid or a sheet of heavy-duty alumi¬num foil. Bake until the carrots are fork-tender and infused with coffee oil, 2 to 3 hours. 
Lift the carrots from the bed of coffee beans and serve immediately. Discard the coffee.
Store: for up to 3 days, covered in the refrigerator. Reheat gently in a low oven.
