sweet and smoky roasted carrots

I’m always looking for easy and tasty side dishes to go along with something simple like roasted chicken thighs. Turn the oven on and I’m basically done with dinner. Haha. These Sweet and Smoky Roasted Carrots fit that bill nicely. Take carrots, toss them in a smoky-spicy cider vin dressing with paprika, cumin, cayenne and a drizzle of honey. Roast ’em up and pile them on a plate with a swoop of Greek yogurt and any extra dressing. Veggies and sauce all set!

These carrots would make a great side dish, but this batch I had for lunch. My greenmarket had some small rainbow carrots and I thought they’d be cute and colorful here. I sprinkled them with some smoked almonds (which I’m kind of addicted to) for a bit of extra toasty oomph. Something I really like about this recipe is that you can take the technique and play around with the dressing ingredients/flavorings to suit your tastes or to suit your particular meal.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan (it’s also here), and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  1. What a pretty plate of roasted carrots,especially given how easy it is to put them together!

  2. Beautiful delicious looking carrots. Adding this to my 2020 recipe list of good things to make. Happy New Year to you. Teresa

  3. Definitely love how versatile things like roasted vegetables are in terms of what you can dress them with etc…

  4. I really liked this recipe and simple idea of roasted carrots. Would much rather eat them without the sauce. I thought the sauce needed some tweaking but I’m so happy with the flavor and taste of them served just plain, that I may not bother. I love your colored carrot choices!

  5. Your Sweet and Smoky Roasted Carrots are really beautiful. I’m making a note in my book to do that sometime soon and to sprinkle on smoked almonds…what a brilliant idea. Great post, fantastic photo. You rock.
