Honey + Thyme Roasted Carrots
2 pounds carrots, peeled (Trader Joe's Organic Carrots of Many Colors used here, but any variety will work)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup honey
6 sprigs fresh thyme
sea salt and cracked pepper
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Carefully cut (washed and peeled) carrots in half lengthwise with a paring knife.
- Remove thyme leaves by pinching the stem at the top with fingers from one hand and pulling down length of the stem with the other hand. Stir olive oil, honey, thyme, salt and pepper in small bowl until combined.
- Pour honey thyme glaze over carrots on a lipped baking sheet, tossing to evenly coat. Roast for 30 minutes or until golden brown (fork should easily pierce the thickest part of the carrot).
