Spice Crusted Winter Vegetables with Harissa Yogurt

Roasted vegetables with harissa labneh sauce

2 pounds small carrots or other hearty winter vegetable (we used brussels sprouts), salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon English mustard powder
1 teaspoon hot smoked Spanish paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground coriander or fennel
4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
Freshly ground black pepper

½ cup labneh (or plain Greek yogurt)
1 tablespoon harissa paste
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, plus more
½ teaspoon finely grated lemon zest, plus more
Lemon wedges (for serving)

Blanch vegetables in a large pot of boiling salted water, about 3 minutes; drain. If using a root vegetable, gently rub with paper towels to remove skins and pat dry.

Mix sugar, mustard powder, paprika, cumin, and coriander in a small bowl. Toss carrots with 1 Tbsp. oil in a medium bowl. Add spice mixture; season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.

Heat remaining 3 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet, preferably cast iron. Working in 2 batches, cook carrots, turning occasionally, until deep brown all over, 6–8 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, place labneh or yogurt in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Add harissa paste, 2 tsp. thyme, and ½ tsp. lemon zest and gently swirl ingredients, stopping before yogurt turns pink.

Spoon harissa mixture onto plates and top with carrots, more thyme, and more lemon zest. Serve with lemon wedges.
