Coriander-Roasted Carrots

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: Approximately 35 minutes

Carrots (preferably small-medium in size)
Whole coriander seeds
Olive oil
Orange peels

1. Trim the tops of the carrots. Give the tops a taste before you pitch them. If you like them, save the tops for sautéed greens or soup; otherwise, compost the green stuff.
2. Wash the carrots well. If they’re small to medium-sized and sweet enough, there’s no need to peel them. The skin is delicious when roasted.

3. Lay the carrots down side-by-side for even cooking. (TIP: Do not pile them on top of each other.)

4. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and a generous amount of whole coriander seeds on top. Tuck a few orange peels amongst the carrots—it’s best if they’re underneath the carrots and submerged in the oil so that the peels will flavor the oil and keep from burning while in the oven.
5. Roast at 350℉ for about 30 minutes or until just cooked through. Carrots should be tender but not mushy, and the skin should be lightly blistered and golden.

6. Cool 5 minutes before snacking.
