This week we celebrate the two year anniversary 27.04.2021 ** of Weekend Herb Blogging 27.04.2021 ** with part two of the The Doubly Delicious Two Year Celebration. 27.04.2021 ** Bloggers are invited to post any recipe with at least one vegetable and one herb for this special WHB event. I began to blog about herbs since the 20th edition of WHB 27.04.2021 ** and I still have fun. Last year I featured parsley as my favourite herb in combination with potatoes. This year I had a „little“ problem with my herbs in the garden, but the thyme survived all attacks. Normally I would combine carrots – the one and only vegetable all members of the family love- with parsley, but than I found the recipe for
Spaghetti with thyme-flavoured carrot pesto
A great and delicious combination. My sons were impressed, so was I.

1. Cook pasta until firm to bite. Sautée carrots, shallots and chili pepper in hot oil, salt and pepper and caramelise with honey. Cook on low heat about 5 minutes. Add the thyme leaves.
2. Toast pine nuts in a pan until golden. Add parmesan and pine nuts to the vegetable mixture and blend coarsely.
3. Arrange pesto with spaghetti, garnish with pieces of goat’s cheese and fresh thyme.

What a very unique and interesting idea for a variation of pesto. I love the flavor of thyme with carrots, and the additions of pine nuts and goat cheese both sound wonderful! Thanks for helping us celebrate two years of WHB, and good luck with the kitchen remodeling!
Ich dachte, die Küche sei wegen Umbau geschlossen….Ist sie nicht, im Gegenteil, da werden gute Gerichte gekocht!!!
Oh man da bekomm ich gleich Hunger… Das werd ich mal heut zum Mittag versuchen!! Danke
Thyme for Cooking
I love carrots with thyme – and add in the goat cheese.. I’m guessing this was a bit hit at your house! I’ve done something similar with spinach, but now I have to try this.
Ich habe lange geschwankt, ob ich mit Karotten koche, dann etwas anderes gewählt. Aber Karotten und Thymian, lecker. Werde es bald versuchen.
If ever there was the perfect way to serve up all those delicious carrots from the garden..this is it. What an ingenious way to present them…and on pasta no less. Perfect!
such a good idea
carrots, thyme and honey go really well together! I’ve been making something similar with grated zucchini over the summer but its great to have a Winter option
A wonderful presentation, intriguing dish and original. I’m tempted to try this out!
This looks wonderful!
I love organic carrots and always have several pounds on hand in the fridge, but I never thought to turn them into pesto. And I have lots of thyme in the garden that really needs to make its way into the kitchen. Thanks for such an inspiring recipe. Can’t wait to try it! : )
