Spice & Honey Roasted Carrots

Makes: 6 servings
Prep 20 mins Roast 425°F 25 mins to 30 mins
Spice & Honey Roasted Carrots
  • 1 1/2  pounds  regular or rainbow carrots, scrubbed and peeled if desired.
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1/2  cup  coarsely chopped hazelnuts
  • 1  tablespoon  coriander seed
  • 1  tablespoon  sesame seed
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  cumin seed
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1  tablespoon  honey
  •  Lemon wedges

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Trim carrots, reserving tops, if desired. Scrub carrots and peel, if desired. Halve any large carrots lengthwise.

2. Line a shallow roasting pan with foil. Evenly spread carrots in pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast carrots, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, for dukkah, heat a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add hazelnuts; cook and stir 3 minutes or until fragrant and toasted. Transfer to a glass bowl. Add coriander, sesame and cumin seed to hot skillet. Cook on medium-high heat for 2 minutes or until fragrant and toasted. Remove spices from heat and transfer to another bowl; cool for 10 minutes.

4. Using a spice grinder, coffee grinder, or mortar and pestle, grind or crush toasted spices till just coarsely ground or desired consistency. Add the hazelnuts, salt, and pepper, crushing nuts slightly. Remove carrots from the oven. Drizzle with honey; toss to evenly coat. Sprinkle carrots with half of the dukkah*. Return to the oven; roast 5 to 10 minutes more.

5. Serve carrots with lemon wedges. Makes 6 servings.

From the Test KitchenTry something different:
  • Thoroughly wash and dry the carrot tops. Place in a foil lined roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil and roast alongside the carrots.
  • Remaining dukkah can be sprinkled on cooked vegetables, added to olive oil for bread dipping, or sprinkled on a sour cream dip. Dukkah can be stored in a tightly sealed container for up to 2 weeks.
