Found these carrots on Pinterest earlier this year & they are one of my favorite things to snack on. Very easy to make & super savory.
- 1 1/2 lb Peeled baby carrots
- 1/2 cup Fresh lime juice
- 1 tbsp Honey
- 1/4 tsp Cumin
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- Fresh pepper
- Crushed red pepper
- Coarse sea salt
The Jump Off:
Preheat your oven to 350º.
Add all of your wet ingredients and cumin to a bowl and mix until fully combined.
Toss in the carrots and coat them. Season with a little fresh pepper and coarse sea salt to taste. Add crushed red pepper to taste. This bit of heat adds a nice counter punch to the sweetness from the carrots/honey & acidity of the lime.
Add the coated carrots to a baking dish or oven proof pan being sure to add all of the remaining juice.
Bake for 25 minutes or until tender.
Toss carrots, garnish with cilantro, and scallions.
Allow to cool and serve.
Side note: The 1st few times that I made this, I had a lot of juice left over, I drained it and reduced it in a saute pan then poured the reduction back over the carrots. This added a very nice concentrated flavor punch!
