Spicy Roasted Carrots

  • 30 small rainbow blend carrots, scrubbed
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Juice from one lime
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tahini

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the carrots in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients to make a sauce. Spoon about two-thirds of the sauce over the carrots and, using your hands, turn them until they are well-coated.

Roast the carrots in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove them briefly from the oven and spoon the remaining sauce over the carrots. Return to the oven and roast an additional 15 minutes.

Serve immediately after roasting.
