OKLAHOMA CITY – Carrots are naturally sweet, and the addition of honey and a hint of ginger makes them irresistible. Use tri-color carrots (available at Whole Foods, Uptown Market and Trader Joe’s) for added color and interest. This is a perfect compliment to a spring or Easter entree.

2lbs carrots – peeled and cut diagonally into 1/2″ pieces.
2 T olive oil
1 T honey
1/2 t ground ginger
1/2 t dried or 1 t fresh thyme
Salt and pepper to taste.
1 T chopped, fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 425.
In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, honey, ginger and thyme. Toss carrot pieces in mixture until thoroughly coated. Place on baking sheet – may line with foil for easier cleanup. Be careful that pieces do not overlap. Roast in 425 degree oven for 30-35 minutes, or until done to desired firmness. Remove to platter or bowl; sprinkle with chopped parsley. Optional: drizzle with a touch of fresh lemon juice or garnish with lemon wedges.
