Roasted Curried Carrots
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20-25 minutes
2 lbs. fresh carrots, peeled and cut on the diagonal
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. honey, preferably local
1 T. curry powder
10-12 fresh thyme sprigs
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Place top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat oven to 400°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat™ baking sheet. Set aside.
Add carrots, olive oil, honey, curry powder, and fresh thyme to a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper, to taste. Toss until well combined.
Pour seasoned carrots on the prepared sheet pan and spread into a single layer without overcrowding. Place in the pre-heated oven and roast for 20-25 minutes, turning carrots once halfway through cooking. Carrots should be crisp-tender and nicely browned when ready.
Remove from oven and transfer to a serving bowl or platter. Serve immediately with your choice of entrees. Enjoy!
