Carrots in crispy filo dough (healthy snack!) from Jamie Oliver

Must Try

Atasty, healthy snack is always welcome, especially if we want to serve our children something delicious. Jamie Oliver understands that better than anyone, so we tried a recipe from his latest book, VEG. These carrots in crispy filo pastry are the healthy snack of your dreams.


For 6 people:

  • 12 carrots (choose nice thin ones)
  • 3 oranges
  • 3 bay leaves
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 sheets of filo dough
  • Olive oil
  • Honey
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

For the dip:

  • 1 tablespoon tahini(i)
  • 2 teaspoons harissa
  • 6 tablespoons yogurt

We can eat carrots anyway (caramelized with the taste of bay leaf, in a salad, with hummus or another fine dip or in a carrot cake) and if you wrap those orange rascals in crispy filo dough, it will be a real party . Delicious with a fresh dip of yogurt, tahini and harissa.

This recipe is originally from Jamie Oliver’s book VEG , we adapted it a bit for a can’t-fail version.

Serve them on the snack board between the bitterballen and we bet that they go up faster than the good old bitterbal.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and prepare a baking tray with baking paper.

Boil the carrots in a pan of salted water for about 10 minutes. Drain them and set them aside.

Grate half of the oranges and mix the grated zest in a small saucepan with the juice from all oranges. Add the bay leaves and a pinch of salt and let it reduce until you have a nice syrup. Then toss the carrots through the syrup.

Place the sheets of filo on the counter with the short side facing you. Cut them in half lengthwise. Brush them with some olive oil and place a carrot at the bottom of a strip of filo dough. Roll up like a cigar.

Spread the carrots on the baking tray and brush with a little more oil. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Drizzle over the honey, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and put them back in the oven briefly (about 5 minutes).

For the dip, put the yogurt in a bowl. Spread the tahini over it and scoop a nice dollop of harissa in the middle. If necessary, pull strips through it with a fork. And dip!
