- 4 lbs carrots
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 4 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp sriracha
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 cup fresh cilantro
- 3 oz goat cheese
- 2 tbsp toasted pumpkin seeds aka pepitas
Preheat oven to 450F and line a baking sheet with tinfoil. Clean carrots and discard skin. Toss carrots with olive oil and a hefty pinch of salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix honey, sriracha, and lemon juice together in a small bowl and set aside.
When the carrots are tender and beginning to caramelize, remove from heat and drizzle with the honey sriracha mixture. Put the sheet pan back in the oven for 5 minutes or until sauce bubbles.
Remove from heat and place carrots on a large serving plate. Top with cilantro, crumbled goat cheese and toasted pumpkin seeds.
