About this recipe: An absolutely delicious Italian inspired starter of marinated carrots with lots of garlic! Tastes best if prepared a few days in advance which allows the flavours to develop.


Serves: 6 

  • 600g carrots
  • 5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pinch dried oregano (or 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:1day marinating  ›  Ready in:1day25min 

  1. Peel the carrots and cook whole in a saucepan of boiling salted water until firm to the bite; make sure not to overcook and remove just before you think they are done as they will continue cooking once removed from the heat. Drain carrots and cut into 3cm long strips.
  2. In a small bowl combine balsamic vinegar, salt, cayenne, olive oil and oregano. Add garlic and mix well.
  3. Place carrots into a container with a tight fitting lid and pour marinade on top. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 1 day.
  4. Remove from the fridge and serve chilled.
