The perfect side dish, from our friends at Whole Foods


  • 2 pounds baby carrots
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey


Preheat oven to 400°F. Put carrots, paprika, cumin, salt, ginger, cinnamon, garlic powder, cayenne, black pepper and 1 tablespoon of the oil into a large bowl and toss to coat. Transfer carrots to a large rimmed baking sheet and spread out in a single layer. Roast, tossing halfway through, until just tender, 30 to 40 minutes.

Remove carrots from oven and transfer to a large bowl. Add lemon juice and honey and toss well. Drizzle with a bit more oil, if you like, then serve.
