5 Carrots (Large) 2 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2 Tablespoon Honey 1 Teaspoon Coarse Salt ½ Teaspoon Black Pepper ½ Teaspoon Thyme ¼ Teaspoon Red Chili Powder
Preheat the oven to 400°. Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper.
Scrub carrots clean under running water, and peel from end to end.
Cut the carrots in half lengthwise, and lay them on the sheet pan.
Mix olive oil, honey, and spices together in a microwave safe bowl. Heat the glaze in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to make the honey really runny and easy to spread.
Drizzle the glaze over the carrots and toss using tongs or your hands until they are completely covered. Pop in the oven! After 20 minutes, turn each carrot over to the other side. Let them cook for 20 more minutes. Poke with a fork to make sure they are cooked through.
Remove from the oven and serve alongside your favorite Main Dish.
Roasting means cooking with higher heat. Large pieces will brown and stay firm without drying out.
A little olive oil helps the carrots brown and keep them from getting dry burned edges. You should coat them very well before putting them in the oven.
A little fat also enhances the flavor of these Roasted Carrots and everything else you cook. If you oven has hot spots, you may want to turn the pan around at the same time you turn the carrots.
