Ingredients

  • 2 pounds carrots, peeled, if desired and cut into 1-inch pieces

This sounds amazing, except that I oven roast pretty much all of my veggies. I wonder how I could adapt this to still use honey and cinnamon (without burning the honey)?
Samantha Aleman
You could probably roast your carrots how you normally would, and then when they are almost done (with maybe 5 minuted to go) drizzle the honey and sprinkle the cinnamon on. I haven’t tried it this way, so I don’t know if it’ll work, but if you try it - do let me know how it turns out!
