You only need a handful of ingredients to create this delicious roasted-pork meal.


  • 1 ½ pounds carrots, cut into 3-inch pieces

  • 5 medium fennel bulbs, cut into 1-inch wedges

  • 3 lemons, halved

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 2 pounds boneless pork loin roast, tied at 1-inch intervals

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss together carrots, fennel, lemons, and oil. Season with salt and pepper, arrange in a single layer, and roast 25 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and stir; place pork in center of sheet, sprinkle with coriander, and season with salt and pepper. Roast until vegetables are tender and pork is browned and cooked through (an instant-read thermometer inserted into center should read 145 degrees), 30 to 35 minutes.

  2. Tent pork with foil and let rest 15 minutes. Reserve 3 cups vegetables in an airtight container for Roasted Vegetable Salad with Lentils recipe. Slice pork and serve with lemons and remaining vegetables.
