Every Tuesday, we scan Food52′s delectable menu of recipes for the healthiest picks they’ve got—bringing you seasonal, scrumptious fare that’s also really good for you.

This weekend, lots of people will be sitting down to Passover Seders and Easter dinners. Food52 created creative menu plans for both occasions, but the Passover menu is heavier on healthy veggies. We chose to highlight this dish off the menu, since carrots are veritable vitamin powerhouses. Serve it alongside this Marinated Cauliflower and Roasted Broccoli with Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette.

1. Cut the carrot to rounds about 1/2 cm thick.
