(4 side servings)

Ingredients:

2 lbs Organic Heirloom Carrots

3 Organic Garlic cloves

2 Tbsp Organic Raw Honey (OR Raw Unrefined Agave Nectar for a Vegan option)

¼ cup Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice (one orange should do it)

the Zest of an Orange

Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 400F. Wash the carrots and trim the tops. Now, you can either peel them or not: I don’t as I like to get that extra intake of fiber, and the peel is very thin anyways. Your call! Toss them in the olive oil and arrange them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet along with the garlic cloves halved. Season with salt and pepper and roast for 30 minutes, flipping the carrots over after 15.

In a small bowl combine the honey, orange juice and zest. When carrots are ready, remove from oven and brush the honey-orange mixture on top making sure they are fully coated. Remove the garlic (as it will end up burning) and return to oven for 5-7 minutes. Adjust salt & pepper to taste and serve warm. You can sprinkle with fresh or dried thyme if desired.
