Here's how you do it

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C/400F
  2. Scrub the carrots clean and toss with a little oil, salt and pepper. Roast in a large roasting dish for 20 mins, or until tender (test with a sharp knife)
  3. Toast the hazelnuts in a dry pan for a few minutes until golden brown then immediately remove from the hot tin so they don’t burn.
  4. To make the pesto: in a food processor whizz the herbs until finely chopped, add everything else except the nuts until thoroughly combined. Then add around half the toasted nuts, pulsing until incorporated but still textured.
  5. Lightly crush the reminder of the nuts in a pestle and mortar.
  6. To serve, spread a large spoonful of labneh across the middle of a plate then top with the carrots, pesto and crushed nuts.
