How to make easy roasted carrots with orange and cardamom for the holidays.
Serves 4 (recipe as shown in video is half of these measurements)
1 lb carrots, washed, peeled and tops removed
3 Tbs coconut oil
1 Tbs fresh thyme
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp salt
juice and zest of 2 oranges
1/4 tsp garlic salt (optional, not shown in video)
Preheat oven to 500F
Boil carrots in water for 2 minutes then remove and place in an ice bath to stop the cooking process.
Remove carrots from ice bath, and place on a baking sheet.
In a small bowl combine remaining ingredients and drizzle over all of the carrots.
Place the carrots in the oven and roast for 10 - 15 minutes, turning as needed for even cooking, and remove when fork tender and nicely caramelized.
Serve with extra orange zest sprinkled on top and garnish with roasted orange slices and thyme.
