  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Trim the tops off the carrots. Using a vegetable peeler, peel off skin. 
  • Place carrots on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. You'll be glad you take this step, as you are cooking with a thick glaze. Cleanup will be so easy.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, zest and lime juice, salt, cumin, coriander, and paprika. Pour the mixture over the carrots and with tongs, toss to coat. 
  • Roast about 20 - 30 minutes. or until carrots are tender and starting to show color.

For an impressive display, use multi-colored carrots. And plain orange carrots work beautifully also.
