Healthy Recipe of the Week
Honey Roasted Carrots with Goat Cheese + Pistachios
Going to the local farmer’s market?
Pick up some rainbow carrots!
While rainbow carrots are at peak freshness during Fall, regular bagged carrots can be purchased at a local grocery store throughout the year. Look for smaller, thinner carrots that will have a faster roasting time!

- 2 bunches Rainbow Carrots
- 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 tablespoon Raw Honey (*may substitute with Agave or “hot honey”)
- 1/8 cup Pistachios (finely chopped) (*unsalted is recommended)
- Crumbled Goat Cheese
- Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
- Paprika or Chile, to taste (added to honey) (*optional)
- Fresh Dill (chopped for garnish)
Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Wash and peel carrots, leaving the top green parts intact for presentation. Place the carrots on the lined baking sheet.
Combine the olive oil and honey in small bowl. Drizzle mixture over the carrots.
Sprinkle with salt and black pepper.
Roast carrots for 20 – 30 minutes until fork-tender. *Keep a close eye on the carrots, as oven temperatures may vary.
Remove carrots from the oven. Crumble goat cheese over the carrots, amount as desired. Return to the oven for 3 – 5 minutes until cheese starts to melt.
Transfer carrots to a plate and garnish with dill and chopped pistachios.
