Serves 4-6
  • 1 lb rainbow carrots
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 425°. 

Cut carrots alternately on the bias and place on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with oil, and toss to combine. Roast carrots, tossing occasionally, until tender, about 15 minutes

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, add sugar, orange juice, and thyme and stir to combine. Cook until thickened slightly, 2-3 minutes.

Remove carrots from oven, drizzle with sugar-orange juice mixture and return to oven. Cook 5 minutes. Remove from oven, season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with zest, and toss to combine.
