Roasted 'Soy' & Honey-Glazed Carrots (gluten free, soy free)
Updated: Sep 5, 2020
If I had to choose between celery and carrots... it's easy... I'm a carrot person.
When crudité and hummus is served, I always go straight for the carrots. I even used to eat baby carrots as a snack *every*single*day! You know that myth: if you eat too many carrots, you'll turn orange, well it never happened to me - but I've probably cut it pretty close.
Carrots have been a lifesaver during quarantine because they last for weeks in the fridge! You can even buy extra to roast off for lunch or a supplement for future dinners!
My favorite way to eat carrots: roasted. My ultimate favorite way to eat carrots: with a 'soy' and honey glaze, topped with pistachios, dairy-free 'feta' or dairy-full feta, and mint! It helps that it's also super colorful!
Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 1 hour
1-lb carrots, washed, peeled and cut into thirds
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Tablespoons Coconut Aminos (or soy sauce or Tamari)
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
pinch of salt
1/4 cup coarsely chopped roasted, salted pistachios
1/2 cup mint leaves, cut into thin slices
Feta Cheese (Dairy Free or Not)
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, combine honey, coconut aminos, olive oil, garlic powder and salt.
In a large bowl, toss carrots in half of the honey mixture. Reserve the remaining half of the mixture for serving.
Place honey-coated carrots to baking sheet, and roast for 20-25 minutes, or until they reach your desired crispiness (I like a good amount of browning)
Plate your carrots. Drizzle remaining honey mixture over the carrots and garnish with pistachios, mint, and feta.
