Method

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place carrots on a lined baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and toss to coat. Roast until browned and tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, place sesame seeds, coriander seeds and fennel seeds in a small dry skillet. Heat seeds over medium heat, shaking the pan occasionally, until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Transfer seeds to a spice grinder and pulse until just crushed, or place on a cutting board and crush with a rolling pin.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together lemon juice and harissa. Add roasted carrots and toss to coat, then transfer to a platter.

Dollop yogurt on top, sprinkle with the seed mixture and then garnish with carrot top greens.
