Method

Place carrots in a deep skillet large enough to hold them in a single layer. 

Top with onions (no need to thaw them). 

In a medium bowl, whisk together broth, tomato paste, shallot, salt and pepper. 

Pour over carrots and onions. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, lower heat, cover and simmer until carrots and onions are just tender, about 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make gremolata, place parsley, lemon zest and garlic on a cutting board. 

Chop them together until they are very fine and well mixed. 

Transfer carrots and onions to a serving platter with their cooking liquid. 

Sprinkle with gremolata and serve.
