  • Baking Sheet


  • 8 medium to large carrots, peeled and sliced diagonally (about 1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • generous sprinkle of kosher salt and cracked black pepper
  • 1.5 TBSP raw organic liquid honey
  • 3 tsp chili flakes more or less to taste


  • Position oven rack to top and preheat the oven to 425º F.
  • Wash and peel the carrots, then cut them into 1/2-inch thick diagonals. Place them into a large bowl, and drizzle them with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.
  • Transfer the carrots to a baking sheet and spread them out evenly. Roast on top rack for 25-30 minutes or until the carrots are golden and tender, shaking and stirring them halfway through.
  • When done, transfer the carrots to a large bowl. Drizzle the honey on top and sprinkle with chili flakes. Toss to coat. Taste and adjust seasoning or heat as desired.
