Honey Roasted Cumin Carrots

These Honey Roasted Cumin Carrots are a perfect side dish for any dinner. You can easily switch things up by swapping in cinnamon, thyme, sage, or rosemary for the cumin!


  • 1 lb carrots
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Trim away the carrot greens (you may leave 1 inch of green for presentation, if desired)
  3. Peel and place in a large bowl. You may chop them into any size you desire!
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, honey, cumin, salt, and pepper. Toss with the carrots until they're evenly coated.
  5. Lay the carrots in a single layer on the baking sheet and drizzle any remaining liquid from the bowl on top.
  6. Roast for approximately 30 minutes, flipping halfway through, until lightly caramelized and tender. Add more salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Serve hot.

Note: For an alternative version, try cutting te honey in half to 1 1/2 tablespoons and adding 1 1/2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup.
