Tikka Masala Carrots

Great as a bright salad or on-trend side, this beta carotene-rich dish combines Indian flavors with sweet carrots and zesty parsley.


1 tsp. tikka masala paste
1 tsp. roasted, mashed Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic
1 tsp. spicy mustard
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1/4 C oil
4 large Markon First Crop Carrots, peeled into ribbons
1/2 C Ready-Set-Serve Italian Parsley, chopped


Add tikka masala paste, garlic, mustard, sugar, salt, lemon juice, vinegar, and oil in a Mason jar (or any container with a sealable top). Shake until emulsified.
Toss carrot ribbons with parsley and dressing, massaging carrots for softer texture.
Serve as a salad or side dish.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
