Description

These extra gingery roasted rainbow carrots are soon to be your favorite veggie recipe! Drizzled with a sweet and spicy maple ginger sauce makes these the perfect side to any holiday dinner!


Ingredients

  • 2 lbs rainbow carrots
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons warm water
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon crystalized ginger, finely chopped
  • fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place carrots on an large baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and toss to coat.
  4. Bake in oven 35-40 minutes, tossing once halfway through until carrots are tender but firm.
  5. In a small bowl, combine maple syrup, water, ground ginger, and crystalized ginger.
  6. Transfer carrots to serving tray, and drizzle with maple mixture.
  7. Top with fresh parsley to garnish.

Notes

  • If you can’t find rainbow carrots, orange carrots would work just fine. You could also do a mix of carrots and parsnips.
  • No fresh ginger? Opt for ground. Just use 1/2 teaspoon instead.
  • Honey is also a great flavor pairing with these carrots, and can be used in place of the maple syrup.
