Ingredients
  • For the carrots:
  • 1 ½ pounds thick baby carrots cut from end to end on the diagonal.
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • To finish:
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons fresh finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon chili garlic sauce
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 500˚F. Spray a sheet pan with cooking spray for easier cleanup.
  2. Combine the melted butter, honey, ginger, soy sauce and chili garlic sauce in a small bowl. Stir well to combine. Set aside
  3. Arrange the carrots on the sheet pan in an even layer.
  4. Drizzle the carrots with the olive oil and toss to coat with a spatula. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss again.
  5. Roast for 10 minutes, then remove from oven and stir well. Redistribute carrots to an even layer and return to the oven for another 5-8 minutes until tender and charred in places.
  6. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the honey butter mixtures. Stir well to coat and return to the oven for another 3-5 minutes until nicely glazed. Try to wait to start snitching until they have cooled down a bit. Serve warm, garnished with fresh mint or cilantro, if desired.
