Cumin Roasted Carrots 🥕


👨‍🍳 This recipe for spicy-sweet roasted carrots can be made in the oven OR on the grill – which means it’s a great side dish for a bbq.

The cumin seeds (this week’s food of the week) give a pop of just-right spice. 

If you’re grilling, seal the prepped carrots in foil and roast until tender.

🥕 Cumin Roasted Carrot 🥕

(makes 4 servings)

  • 4 large carrots, sliced into ¼-inch (½ cm) rounds
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1½ tsp cumin seed
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • Pinch of cayenne

Preheat the oven to 450ºF/230ºC.

Slice the carrots. In a medium bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients. Add the carrots and mix well. 

Spread out the carrots in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. 

Roast for 20 mins and then remove from the oven to flip the carrots over to ensure even cooking. Roast for another 10-12 minutes, until browned.

Try not to eat them all at once 🙂
