Winter is coming, but we don’t have a care in the world thanks to this bright harvest bowl starring shiny honeyed carrots infused with the gentle flavour of fresh thyme sprigs. Freekeh has a savoury, smoky flavour thanks to being fire-roasted—perfect with the dried cherries. To this chewy and aromatic base, add crunchy lettuce and beets, dressed in a perky honey-Dijon vinaigrette. Crumble goat cheese and toss toasted pecans over the bowl to complete this masterwork.

Preparation

Cook the freekeh
Fill a medium pot ⅔ of the way with water. Add the freekeh and season with S&P; bring to a boil and cook, 24 to 26 minutes, until tender. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the dried cherries and toss with a drizzle of oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Cover and set aside in a warm spot.

Toast the pecans
While the freekeh cooks, heat a large, dry, high-sided pan on medium-high. Add the pecans and toast, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until fragrant. Transfer to a cutting board and roughly chop. Reserve the pan.

Cook & glaze the carrots
While the freekeh continues to cook, in the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on high; add the carrots, thyme sprigs, honey and 1 ½ cups water (double for 4 portions); season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Cook, without stirring, 4 to 6 minutes, until the water has almost reduced. Stir the carrots and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, until the water has completely evaporated and the carrots are lightly browned, tender and thoroughly glazed. Remove and discard the thyme sprigs.

Make the salad
