A tasty side for any dinner.
2 pounds carrots, peeled and sliced into 4-6 inch pieces
2 tablespoons olive, grape seed or avocado oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
orange or lemon zest, and fresh thyme to garnish (optional)
Place carrots into a steamer for about 10-12 minutes or until fork tender.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix together salt, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add the olive oil and turn into a paste.
Let the steamed carrots sit to cool, then place on a parchment- or tinfoil- lined baking sheet.
Using well washed or gloved hands, rub the brown paste all over the carrots.
Bake for 7 minutes. Garnish right before serving, and enjoy!
