Honey-Roasted Carrots

Recipe: Tieghan Gerard

Total Time: 35 minutes

“Carrots are naturally sweet, and roasting them brings that out even more while the honey creates a nice glaze. Then the herb oil helps balance all that sweetness.”


  • 12 medium carrots (about 2 lbs.), scrubbed
  • 1⁄3 cup plus 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • Fine pink Himalayan salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped or grated
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • 1⁄4 cup pomegranate seeds


Yield: Serves 4
