8-10 carrots 12-14 plums, such as damson plum (preferably hard plums) 4 tbsp maple syrup 4-5 tbsp olive oil

Tahini Sauce

1⁄2 cup raw tahini 3⁄4 cup ice water 1⁄2 tsp salt 1⁄2 tsp ground black pepper 1⁄2 tsp ground chili pepper 2 tbsp soy sauce


1 cup flour 1⁄2 cup ground walnuts 1⁄2 tsp salt 3 tbsp canola oil


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Preheat oven to 390°F.

  • Peel the carrots, cut the plums in half and remove the core. Transfer everything to a bowl, add the oil and maple syrup and mix well.

  • Transfer the carrots only to the baking pan and roast, first with foil for half an hour.

  • After half an hour, remove the foil, add the plums, put the foil back on and continue roasting at 355°F for another 10 minutes.

  • Preparation of tahini chili sauce: In a bowl, place the tahini, spices and soy sauce and mix. A hard paste is obtained. Add 2-3 tablespoons of ice water and continue to mix while the spread turns yellowish to white: add 2-3 tablespoons of water to get a smooth spread.

  • After half an hour, remove the foil and spread the tahini chili sauce on the vegetables evenly. Continue roasting for another 10 minutes.

  • Preparing the crumble: Place all the ingredients on a worktop, rub everything in with your fingertips until the mixture looks like moist breadcrumbs.

  • Add it to the carrots and plums and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Serve.
