I have been lying low these past few weeks studying for a practical exam (that is done, dusted and passed- phew!), and now for my written exam. That means I have succumbed to what a lot of people do in my situation โ€“ procrastibaking!

I had the ultimate procrastibaking session over the weekend making a roast rack of pork with crackling and crispy roast potatoes, teamed with sauerkraut and these carrots with labne.

Labne is a strained yoghurt, or yoghurt โ€˜cheeseโ€™ and its cool creaminess with the smokiness of the paprika really makes the humble carrot shine. It is a delicious way to eat your veggies!
